That must be a pretty new nameserver then you have there, seeing that
first of all it all started out with ip6.int and 3ffe::/16 was the
second interration of the 6bone, before that we actually used 5f00::/8
with, if I recall correctly, the 16 bit ASN going after the first 8 bits
and then some reserved bits and the IPv4 /24 where the host was, some
bits for the subnet and then finally 48bits for the MAC (not EUI-64)
address. Thanks for Surfnet.nl for giving me a chunk out of that and
hooking me up to the rest of the 6bone ;)
And the e.f.f.3.ip6.arpa took a long time to materialize actually, thus
it is a miracle that you have a zone file for that as it was only used
for only a year or so.

(I don't see how one can forget a death when you are present at the
location) Nevertheless, the internet is a global thing, thus 'there' is
what we call Earth. The answer is much simpler, there is no boss, just a
lot of people who are doing a lot of things for a long time already.
But as you wonder who died in the process of IPv6 getting here while
doing major contributions:
Jun-ichiro "itojun" Itoh Hagino - the IPv6 Samurai
Jim Bound - who did an amazing amount of work for IPv6
