I've stayed out of this since I'm not following list closely right  
now but if there's been progress made in last 14 months on more  
providers in the US having IPv6-capable deployment it would be great  
to hear.  When I was doing the v6 work for Connexions and looking at  
who to set up the v4/v6 eBGP sessions with only ONE provider had  
anything realistic.  And we were announcing the /48 for about 6  
months.....until the demise of a great system (Connexion) due to  
business reasons.  Bummer.  [and yeah - we were guinea pigs for what  
a provider would do with our own personal /48........]

I talked to a few other carriers but they had nothing 'right now' in  
Seattle......and of course that was a year ago.  Glad to hear if it  
was today then I wouldn't have so much of an issue finding someone?    
An update would definitely be interesting....
