I am really wondering how the other employees of his company think about
all this.
Mike CHENEY, Myriam MOREL, Bruno NASH, Chris BURTON where are you??

On which _real_ IX (check http://www.v6nap.net/) is "NDSOFTWARE"
Maybe you can go there and people would be pleased to setup a native

You really need BGP experience to make BGP work. As for routing IPv6
is only playing with bigger addresses, nothing more.

They will get better routing as it will be pushed to the edges and
those "not so responsive pTLA's" as you call it (read your own words
won't do any transit routing any more for most sites. All traffic will
be carried over productional links. And as productional links do have
an SLA (that's Service Level Agreement) there is money (penalties and
behind it too keep it up and working.

This is just like the situation in the current IPv4 world.
No pay/pain, no gain.

If they offer production services they should move to RIR space as 6bone
space was meant for _testing_ and _experimental_ purposes.

Now you really have to explain everybody why that is.
Or do you mean the english word "can" is a possibility like:
"I can jump over a mountain" doesn't how high the mountain is.

The same as which? As IPv4? Where people inject /30's into the DFZ?
There was another reason for making IPv6 and limiting on TLA sizes:
smaller global routing tables.
Or at least the hope of keeping it in limits so you don't have to buy
a new router with 1TB of memory.

Real ISP's can get sTLA's, they pay for it and have a customer base and
other ISP's who they need to keep friends with otherwise they will get
cut off or loose their paying customers.

Which of the one is it, or do you mean there is a contact who is alive
but actually can't be reached? You might start writing in french as that
is probably a better way to express yourself.

And do you also act like that to the rest of the world ?
It's not a local problem mind you, not only "oh they don't pay me so I
can break it".

Yeah yeah you pasted that before, do you realize it stands for Multi
Exit Descriminator?
But how can you use it if you only have 1 exit or have you got your own
native IPv6 cables
between your routers?
