This same Vendor C wants us to upgrade our 7206VXR's to ASR1K's just so we
have the (hopefully working) IPv6 features in IOS-XE that are broken in

Thanks. And thanks to Vendor-C for helping us through it.  The IPv6
featureset on the ASR platform starting from IOS-XR 3.1 is a vast
on its predecessors.

Biggest hassle with IPv6 in production right now:  DNS support is woefully 
undercooked.  I don't think anyone has put anywhere near as much effort into
making it fluid, user-friendly, and automated.  Simple questions like, "How
are reverse mappings supposed to work when you can't predict an end-user's
address?" have no good answer.  If any systems folks want a nice meaty
domain to focus their efforts on, DNS would be da shiznit.
