I think the key issue is to get anything going. Anything is better than

Of course there would also be the 6to4 option. Might also be smart, to
check if those providers offer a 6to4 gateway, then 6to4 tunneling,
could be used in the interim.
6to4 is definitely worth investigating, but there are a few downsides,
- gateway is often far away (you hint at this)
- it complicates firewalling; a site may need additional rules relating
to wrapping, unwrapping and passing protocol IPPROTO_IPV6 (41) on the
iptables (ie. IPv4 tables) side of things
It's definitely an option to consider, though...
