   I think it sounds like an excellent idea. I have to admit that I, like
many people, have been wondering where the 6bone was headed and how the
real IPv6 Internet would come to life. It has to start somewhere...
   Speaking of which, I've been looking for a good excuse to get ftp.cdrom.com
running an IPv6 stack, not to mention pushing CRL in the IPv6 direction, and
I think what you're proposing is just the excuse I've been looking for.
