I can understand the lags caused by DNS issues, but flooding? How does
that happen? If someone is running IPv6 on their network and uses a
tunnel to get IPv6 access, then the ISP's network would never see an
IPv6 packet.

Larger routing tables overflowing routers, perhaps. I read about this in a
report, from the IEEE if
I recall correctly.

Or a side effect of some sort. Discovery broadcasts??
