Excuse me.. how do you measure a "6to4 customer"?  By definition there has
to be no prior configuration.  (And when I tested 6to4 relay functionality
in Cisco IOS 12.2(2)T, it wasn't possible to restrict users by access
lists either).

Also, speaking of customers, as a general 6to4 management issue..:

I sure would be interested of nice ways to accomplish either:

 1) monitoring the usage, getting user counts etc. statistics that are
much more easily available with configured tunnel/native customers

 2) test suite for verifying relay functionality, so that the relay can be
fixed ASAP or removed from BGP/IGP announcements if failing.
