You are not right.
1. IPv6 is not installed by default.
2. If IPv6 is installed, routing is not enabled by default.
3. If you install IPv6, you can be bind it to only interfaces it's
required. To prevent IPv6 (or another routable protocol, such as IPX) on
external interface you can (and you should) unbind this protocol from
interface in network connection properties. ISA is not required for this
task and is not supposed for this task.
Again: IPv4 and IPv6 are completely different network protocol and
usually require different administration tools.
P.S. offtopic is right, since Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2003 SP1 there
is a limited (in very few features) IPv6 support for Windows Firewall.
