And from an operators perspective (not manufacturer):

Free ISP ADSL (and fiber) operator in France does IPv6 natively to the 
end user with Router Advertisement since 2 years now.  I think these 
"CPE" (Customer Premises Equipment) are called simply "box" in France 
(freebox, livebox, dartybox, and more).  Between the Free box and the 
core network there is proprietary IPv6-in-IPv4 encapsualtion, not 6to4. 
  No DHCPv6-PD, which I feel as a big restriction.

Plans for livebox and 9box IPv6 do exist if not already deployed.

Spanish FON Fonera based on openwrt, when I checked 2008, did IPv6 
somehow, not sure whether natively.

 From memory, at least one Japanese residential operator did IPv6 to the 
home several years ago, with explicit IPv6 advertisement on TV during 
prime time.
