OK, I'll bite.  What would qualify as a "native IPv6" router?

Perhaps those which were designed with IPv4+IPv6 in mind from day 1,
both in hardware and software - like Juniper/JUNOS. In contrast to other
the gear where IPv6 was always an aftermath, which shows in both
hardware (limits of performance, functionality and scaling) as well as
software (every feature gets implemented twice, even if the feature
itself is completely AFI-agnostic - see e.g. IOS/IOS-XE [can't comment
on XR]).
