That's correct.

As always when doing configured tunnels, you need to pick a few from the 
6bone pTLA list and try traceroutes to them to see if they are reasonable 
for you. Have you read this section on the 6bone hookup page?


Also, you can come up using 6to4. See 
<http://www.6bone.net/6bone_6to4.html>. Also, you can talk to Ron Broersma:

He used 6to4 to get DREN up and qualified for its pTLA this way.

Very little is needed until it becomes production for you (presumably that 
will be a while from now). Some pTLAs spend more than others to be on the 
6bone, but I think it is proportional to their network size/scope and how 
production they want to make it.

That's covered in the requesting a pTLA page:

Again, the pTLA request page, and read RFC2772:
