I'm investigating how to setup multihoming for IPv6 over two DSL lines

In this environment, BGP exchanges with uplink ISPs for multihoming
usually is not an option. One reason maybe cost, another reason maybe
ISP doesn't like to setup BGP with a DSL customer. At least in my
case, reason #2 always prevent my customers to setup BGP with uplink

Agreed. Very common situation. 

As Seth pointed out SHIM6 is still an academic exercise

Another Locator / ID separator protocol is LISP. The advantage is that you don't need to 
change the host but only the CPE. I've been using it to multi-home my house and it works
fine. I'm multihoming my IPv6 /48 over a v6-only DSL and a v4-only FTTH connection. 

More information about LISP be found here: http://www.lisp4.net/

Kind regards,
