Microsoft have had a presence on the 6bone for a long time, and I fail to
see (not that, I must confess, I'm that active in v6 stuff at the moment
after moving jobs) how granting them a block of address space should somehow
be seen as giving Microsoft carte blanche to "develop incompatible protocols".

Can we try and be realistic here?
