Subject: [v6ops] Deprecating 2002::/16 - 6to4 Historic Status
To: "v6ops at ietf.org" <v6ops at ietf.org>

 In  “Request to move Connection of IPv6 Domains via IPv4 Clouds (6to4) to
Historic status”

There is this recommendation:

IANA is requested to mark the 2002::/16 prefix as "deprecated",

   pointing to this document.  Reassignment of the prefix for any usage

   requires justification via an IETF Standards Action [RFC5226].

It is not clear why this is necessary.

If major vendors were to disable 6to4 by default, that would fix the
brokenness issue, while still allow for this prefix to be used in
specialized or enthusiast scenarios. Isn’t any other action overkill?
