Sonic.net ipv6 tunnel reveals user name

I noticed that the domain name on a user's transport IP for the IPv6 tunnel reveals their sonic.net username. Is it possible for sonic to change it's implementation so that the usernames do not show up on the domain name, or removing the domain name completely? I don't like random people having the ability to find out what my user name is whenever they do something like a trace on my IP.

Thanks!

tracert 2001:5a8:0:1::WXYZ (transport IP)
 
Tracing route to gw-[username].ipv6.sonic.net[2001:5a8:0:1::WXYZ] 
over a maximum of 30 hops:
 
  1    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms  2001:5a8:4:ABCD:EFGH:IJKL:MNOP:QRST <- network IP
  2    13 ms    13 ms    13 ms  gw-[username].ipv6.sonic.net [2001:5a8:0:1::WXYZ] <- transport IP
 
Trace complete.

We are discussing this internally now, FYI.

This has been changed. From the team:

Done, but have not changed any in service records. Anyone that resets their config (by clicking view/update) will get the new reverse dns record format.


The new format includes a meaningless number instead of the username. Hope this helps!
