This may be a reasonable assumption at the moment, but in the
context of an experimental and experimenting network (the
6bone) and, more, in the interests of preparing for a far more
6-aware world, I'd like to presume instead that there are many
6-only networks with no 4 network.

This becomes more and more important as chunks of networks
can start to lose their IP4 dependancy - we need to have a
"best practices" documented for a truly mixed network.
