Announcing 2003::/16 during tests of "shipworm"

Something like this can become very useful for people trapped behind 
firewalls that cannot yet do IPv6, and will be useful until IPv6 is 
ubiquitous enough to garner enough support for all companies to support 
IPv6 in production hardware.
Also, I heard there are a few cablemodem providers that block non tcp/udp 
protocols to prevent use of IPSEC by telecommuters and it breaks IPv6 over 
IPv4. Shall these people just be isolated until their providers can get 
their act together?
I could see this being useful to me. Hopefully the standard that is 
published is the standard that Microsoft sticks to when implementing this 
in a release of their OS, so it can be implemented by other platforms.
My god, I'm not only thanking Microsoft, I'm sticking up for them too. What 
is this world coming to?
