Maybe to start -- but again, what kind of 6to4 traffic level are we
expecting yet?

Peak or average? Think twice before answering. :-)

I'm told there are 6to4 relays seeing in excess of 100mbps. Not bursts.
Can you imagine trying to handle 100mbps "internet mix" traffic process
switched? :-Z Not even talking about the peaks.

They may be handling 100mbps but they also have a global scope. But all the traffic statistics for 6to4 relays I've seen push several orders of magnitude *less* traffic then that. Anyone have any real numbers?
