Or, more accurately, 6to4 just defines that packets sent to 
2002:aabb:ccdd::/48 are to be routed via simple v4 encapsulation to 
aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd using the BGP-best route.

Your router would simply need to recognize these and be told where to route

There are custom DNS and proxies to allow v6-only type things.
Unfortunately, I use Linksys PAP2-NA, which has proprietary v4-only firmware, 
not to mention Asterisk which is still v4-only. :(
