I rely on it ;)
At times I have as much as 30% packet loss between two
hosts on ipv4, or the routing table entry in one of the
20 in-between hops is gone completely.
In these situations, ipv6 takes me to the other host
reliably. It's worth it having a partial mesh inside your
pTLA, trust me...
IA64: a worthy successor to i860.
