Also, if a switch does not do MLD snooping, it will flood multicast to
all ports. You lose one of the major benefits of IPv6 multicast - less
admin traffic.

Agreed; but just to be fair: there is still a difference between
multicast being flodded everywhere and boradcast being flooded
everywhere ... L2 interrupt vs. L2+L3 interrupt; bigger difference
than it sounds ;).
