That's correct, with one tiny exception: an IPv6 host with no neighboring
IPv6 router may use an IPv4-compatible IPv6 address for itself; as soon
as a neighboring IPv6 router is installed, the host must switch to using
IPv6 "native" addresses (e.g., the test addresses).
Automatic tunelling is not to be used between routers, only between a router
and an isolated host.
