Ah, no - if there is a substantial amount of deployed connectivity mesh (i.e.
network) in which there is native IPv6 routing.
_In that part of the network_, you will have to inject routes to all those
'mapped' IPv6 destinations, in order for IPv6 packets to those destinations to
be correctly forwarded through that deployed connectivity mesh.
Map+Encap is only a 'pure' mapping solution when it's deployed all the way at
the edges _everywhere_ (i.e. no IPv6 router has anything except a 'default'
route, and maybe a few local routes). If you have some parts of the network
where M+E is not deployed, then it has a routing component (see above) in
those parts of the network.
