more tunnels and what to do next

Looks like a good idea. How about everyone having 24 bit IPv4 subnets. so that
we have 64 bit prefixes formed from there. Ex is 84b1:7600
when I form a prefix I get 5f02:3000:7600:84b1::/64. Then all can agree that 
some standard last octet can be used to find the v4 address for the 
tunnel endpoint. How abot using the last octet of your autonomous system #
e.g. for us ASN is 0x0230 so the last octet is 0x30 so the the tunnel
endpoint is

This is pretty restrictive though, may be something on similar lines.
