I would not call that « "host 6to4" heresy » though.
These automagical RFC3056 implementations (at least Windows XP and
Vista) actually do behave as full 6to4 border gateways. So
real "router", not simple "host" -- That's where the whole "rogue RAs"
thread that I unintendedly sparked in Prague comes from.
And if I'm not mistaken, this behavior is part of the "share my Internet
connection with other computers" option somewhere in Windows.
