Hey Guys,

It would appear I missed an important recent RFC re: IPv6 while
preparing my talk.

The NAT64 RFC was published in late April.


Framework for IPv4/IPv6 Translation


   This note describes a framework for IPv4/IPv6 translation.  This is
   in the context of replacing Network Address Translation - Protocol
   Translation (NAT-PT), which was deprecated by RFC 4966, and to enable
   networks to have IPv4 and IPv6 coexist in a somewhat rational manner
   while transitioning to an IPv6 network.

So it would appear that a sane translation mechanism will exist moving forward.

NB: In my defense, if was published after i'd done the bulk of my RFC trawling
