(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
Did you miss that every IPv4 address is automatically assigned an entire IPv6 network of its own in the 2002::0 range?
Here is mine, for example: 2002:4051:69fa::1 You should be able to get the web page at http://[2002:4051:69fa::1] or http://oberon.zlynx.org/ The DNS has both A and AAAA records.
See the 4051:69fa? That's my IPv4 address: 126.96.36.199
If home routers were preconfigured with 6to4 and radvd, every home user would already be on IPv6.
Sure, an inefficient IPv6 that is tunneled through IPv4, but it sets the stage for moving to ISP assigned addresses later on.
