In contrast, Sixxs and Hurricane Electric offer IPv6 via tunnels of various types. In fact, A & A can do this for you too, in a standards-based way, the same as Hurricane Electric.

No. AA offer native IPv6 straight over PPP, with no overhead and no tunnelling, it's just like the way IPv4 is delivered over DSL. There is simply a conversion server that converts the traffic, and also some tricky business with DNS which lies about the non-availability of AAAA records on IPv4-only servers.

yes that is a tunnel.

It's not what I'd call a tunnel because there's no other end of the tunnel.  Native IPv6 hits the gateway, and native IPv4 comes out the other side.   To me a tunnel would be where IPv6 is carried over IPv4 and then comes out of the other end as IPv6 again.
