Most routers today are basically IPv4 routers, with IPv6 thrown in.
They are however designed keeping IPv4 in mind.

With IPv6 growing, if we were to design a native IPv6 router, with
IPv4 functionality thrown in, then is it possible to design a more
optimal IPv6 router, than what exists today?

Asic based forwarding engines with ipv6 support are more than a decade
old at this point.

If one looks at an asr9000 or an MX or T that looks like an ipv6 router
to me.
