Have you tried running DOS programs on Windows? Many of them worked just fine.
Well, sure. It's called 6to4 and it works really well. But this was not Bernstein's idea. His idea was to run IPv6 over IPv4 network - essentially run Windows programs on DOS. Can you say that "worked just fine"? If yes then you come from some other universe then me... Even Windows 3.11 stopped using DOS for HDD access and when Windows 95 switched to so-called "virus compatibility mode" it became practically unusable.
