This isn't a small issue. Skype and YIM are popular, but 
there's dozens of other applications we don't know (some 
closed circuit) that simply won't work NAT64.

IPv6 literals are also another issue, and while these bugs 
will get worked out with time, users want connectivity now.

I still think NAT64 is the best way moving forward, and 
while it may be painful in the start, it's certainly the 
quickest way to get IPv6 support into software quickly.
