I would even say that DENIC (or even DNS) is merely a red herring. Has it already been decided that it's a good idea to port the IPv4 anycasting scheme to IPv6? Wouldn't it be better to start over with something which is more sound from a technical perspective? Just because addressing tweaks can solve a perceived problem, it doesn't follow that a solution based on addressing is the best one. This might be simply one of those "IPv6 will really take off when you do X" things. But given that IPv6 among DNS servers is rather widespread (in relative terms, of course), I'm not sure if this move is really necessary.
