Get a real one from isp.
You seem to have snipped a bit much there Dan, so it's hard to tell what you're on about.Yes, get a real IPv6 address from an ISP - but that's not the issue here - this issue in this thread is that of having a static IPv6 (or IPv4) address on a laptop when that laptop is out and about and not connected to its home network. So a tunneled or VPN solution is one that seems to work.
Miredo (subject of this thread) appears to be a software package that gives you a static IPv6 address, so all's well (For Kai)
Most of the decent or half decent hosting companies are IPv6 ready now, or getting there. It's just the connectivity ISPs that are being tardy about it. A lot of that has been down to lack of experience, time, budgets, head burying, etc.
However, even when ISPs can provide IPv6 to the CPE, sometimes it's still a struggle.
And what will you do should you ever change ISP? You'll lose the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses you have and need to get new ones - there isn't any way right now to keep one for life without using a 3rd party tunnel/broker service...
