While Robert is assuming this, it does not really matter.

If the 2001:: people mess up their stuff, peer pressure among ISPs
has a good chance of cleaning that up (by dropping peerings and so on),
but it's an "internal" thing - if 6bone messes up 2001:: routing, 
the established mechanisms for communication among ISPs just doesn't
work anymore.

So what Robert's proposal actually does is "encapsulate routing
instabilities inside RIR space / inside 6bone space (wherever it 

If 6bone is unstable, RIR space can still be "productive", and are not
directly affected.

If RIR space is unstable, the RIR space holders have to fix it (and
depending on the way filters will be set up, this might not necesarily
affect 6bone space).
