right, but i guess that there is a difference between actually
obtaining connectivity through two different ISPs than getting
connectivity through one ISP and setting up two tunnels over a dsl line
I mean if a site is obtaining connectivity through two differnet
providers an those don't provide native v6 connectivity, so a tunnel
must be set up, i agree that this is a multihomed site. OTOH, if a site
has a single dsl line and is setting two v6 tunnels to some tunnels
servers around the globe, i must say that they shouldn't qualify for a
PI block imho

arin v4 policy defines
2.7. Multi-homed - An organization is multi-homed if it receives
full-time connectivity from more than one ISP and has one or more
routing prefixes announced by at least two of its upstream ISPs.
i think this is conceptually different from a site with a dsl line and
two tunnels, imho
