Quite right. Just because they don't exist now doesn't mean you
shouldn't plan for it. Bringing up the network at the last minute
because you put it off makes for a pretty crappy network.
As for ammo, I suggest firing RFC 6540 at them.
Yes, running a tunnel works. It just feels like using a horse-and-buggy
to get to the spaceport :)

It frustrates me that TWC doesn't seem to be fully embracing IPv6 yet but I'm sure that will change. You can run a tunnel or 6to4 like I do, if you have a routable address on your router that is (and, of course if your device supports it).
