I like this idea,, and agree about not recreating the big single domain
again.  After all, we will be morphing this thing into a production net.

We already now have www.6bone.net and whois.6bone.net (for the ISI RR).

I especially like NOT having to do NDS updates for sites on a regular
basis...your 6bone-gw.ipv6.your.site makes a lot of sense.
