I like Robert's approach.

Keep the 6bone for whatever experiments people want to do, but make sure
that no transit of non-6bone-space goes through 6bone sites.

2001::/16 people have their own stability issues, but as those are all
commercial entities, I assume more interest in stabilizing IPv6 routing
over here (I'm part of the 2001:: mess).  The commercial world has their
own mechanisms to clean up "bad routing" - like bad RTTs, packet loss,
occasional unreachabilites due to routing loops, and so on.
