And, if RA is obsoleted, which is a point of discussion, there
is no reason to keep so bloated ND only for address resolution.
By who?  Sources please.
A few people on NANOG complaining about RA is pretty far from deprecation of RA.
Especially when some of the biggest IPv6 networks out there are still using
it pretty heavily.

(C''mon you guys, *deploy* already.  It's pretty sad when people are arguing
about stuff like this, and a frikkin' cow college out in the boonies pushing
300-400mbits/sec of IPv6 off-campus is still a "large" deployment. It's
embarassing for the industry as a whole)


Find me some decent consumer CPE and I would be more than happy to deploy IPv6.   So far the choices I have found for 
consumer routers are pathetic.    A fair number of them still have IPv4 issues.


Not quite what you're asking for, but I was very pleasantly surprised to see
that some (at least) Brother printers support IPv6.  Progress...
