The tunnel language was included because there is not enough
deployment of native IPv6 throughout the ARIN reigon yet.

There is at least one large provider that offers v6 everywhere
but the chances of a typical enterprise or large content site
getting native v6 over their current v4 providers is fairly slim.

The tunnel requirement is consistent with the way many applicants
would actually use IPv6 in the near term.

The current v4 policy just says "multi-homed".  It doesn't say anything
about separate physical connections or the speed of the lines.
