Hey Mir,

This is really good stuff, especially the one-way 6to4 measurments.  Couple of 

-- Are you collecting stats on the eye chart itself?  That is, does the page 
send back information to RIPE on which sites worked from a given IP address?  
Those numbers could be a good metric of relative brokenness, by source address 
or by website, since you'll have a sample where the user visits *all* of the 
participating sites (admittedly on a small sample).

-- Again on the eye chart, it seems like it could be useful to put some simple 
summary statistics at the top:
  -- What percentage of sites you reached successfully
  -- What percentage of successes were over IPv6 vs IPv4
  -- How you compare to other users (see above)

-- For the 6to4 measurements, would it be possible to get some probes running 
on a more or less continuous basis, then set up an RRD graph to see how things 
move over time (kind of like on the ATLAS page)?  

Thanks to the NCC for your work on this,
