MPLS for IPv6

I suppose MPLS v6 control plane would become necessary at Ph-2, or a
later stage of Ph-1.

This is a stupidly simple to implement feature, telling us "we're not ready yet"
is not a sensible thing to do, any technology we can have sooner will ease the transition
for many people should they choose to implement it.

I would be interested to know what your views on this are with your vendor hat on :)
