The bad news here, or actually good news, is that many ISP's don't
register their client /48's. The SixXS project for instance
has 515 subnets currently given out to it's users.
We've put a REFER in the remark line to our own whois database
which contains up to date and full informations.
This is done because delegations can and will change quite a lot.

Many other tunnelbrokers exist, check for example freenet6,
and xs26, who apparently have loads of delegations, these are
not to be found in the registries either.

Next to that many people still use 6bone space...
