I've talked with Fred after the v6ops WG meeting this afternoon, and I
work in a document comparing the applicability of existing tunneling

Would it be possible to evaluate deployment issues, i.e., whether said
mechanism is already available today in hosts, and if it isn't, whether
it can easily be implemented in a modular way so it can be added by
others than the OS vendor?
I think you also have to consider whether there's something to
tunnel *to* - is there a significantly large class of dual stack
services that will be able to make use of tunnels? And don't forget
the third class of solution: application level proxies. Would
you advise the operator of a large IPv4-only web site to
a) dual-stack the whole site
b) install a dual-stack proxy for IPv6 clients
c) install a layer 3 translator for IPv6 clients?
