it sounds as if you have the mythical separation of locator
and identifier :-)/2.  the problem is that there is likely
to be a shortage of those locators.

one problem with 6to4 is that having all traffic go through
gateways will not scale well.  to support v6-only folk,
either the number of 6to4 gateways will need to approach
the number of dfz routers, the dfz routers will run 6to4,
or some combination thereof.
