And there are other platforms, e.g. Juniper M/MX/T, where
there is no concept of "punt a packet to software to
perform a forwarding decision". The packet is either
forwarded in hardware, or dropped. IPv6 prefixes > 64
bit are handled like any other IPv6 prefixes, i.e. they
are forwarded in hardware.

IOS XR-based systems operate the same way.
