Some NAT boxes/routers allow the establishment of IPv6 tunnels from 
systems in the private LAN (using private IPv4 addresses) to routers 
or tunnel servers in the public Internet. 
As far as we know this is not a common way of use IPv6 tunnels; the 
usual way is to finish the tunnel directly in a device with an IPv4 
public address. 
This behavior provides a big opportunity to rapidly deploy a huge 
number of IPv6 nodes and networks, without the need of new transition 
mechanism. This option is very important to facilitate the IPv6 
This document describes this behavior and provides hints that should 
be applied in the NAT boxes and tunnel brokers to facilitate it.
