6to4 is a variety of IPv6-in-IP tunnel; you send IP-encapsulated IPv6
packets via an anycast address instead of sending IP-encapsulated IPv6
packets via a particular IP in a particular datacenter.

We also need to consider the AUP of whatever tunnel broker we use. I
can't find one for Hurricane Electric (is there another that services
NA?), but it's perfectly conceivable that another broker could object to
what amounts to a service provider using their service to provide IPv6
to our membership.
