I have an interesting scenario:

I'd love to run a bridge on my home residential connection, but I have
a dynamic IPv4 address, which is discouraged for running Tor bridges.

However, I use Hurricane Electric's TunnelBroker service to gain a
static IPv6 allocation. I've set up TunnelBroker's dyndns service so
if my IPv4 address ever changes, the TunnelBroker side of things is
updated within a few seconds at most.

So, this brings the question: in this environment, would it be okay to
run an IPv6-only bridge, where there is potential for multi-second
hiccups (I've never had my IPv4 address change, though, so the risk of
hiccup is low, but still present)?

What are all your thoughts?
