And for dual-stack organizations using these at the borders, deploying a
local-only 6to4 outbound relay should be easy, right?

(The fact that transits should really be providing 6to4 to their downstreams
notwithstanding -- it would be faster at the org's border, but if transits
collectively offered 2002::/16 as standard practice, it may not be such a
big deal.)
