Time to add 2002::/16 to bogon filters?

If you are using 2002::/16 you know are relying on third parties.  Not that it is much
different to any other address where you are relying on third parties.

If one is going to filter 2002::/16 from BGP then install your own gateway to preserve
the functionality.
