I think you also missed the suggestion that sending out CPE with DD-wrt
was a 'good idea'. Honestly DD-wrt/open-wrt are nice solutions for testing
or for people willing to fiddle, they are not a good solution for
'grandma'.

Yes, vendors should have been asked for v6 capabilities equal to v4
capabilties for atleast 10 years now, in some cases they were in some
cases not. Either way, they aren't pushing out v6 capable product today
are they? Even with:

1) gao mandate
2) 'ipv4 exhaustion'
3) hue anc cry from v6 folks

what's going to change this inthe near future?
