I've tested this years ago and it works just fine. Of course the Cisco  
that could do PD and the Cisco that could do v6 over ADSL were two  
different boxes and even one of them costs 5 - 10 x what a regular  
user is prepared to spend on their ADSL modem while the cheap boxes  
don't do v6 yet and there's tons of details to be worked out before  
you can buy a random cable/DSL modem and connect it to a random ISP  
and expect it two work. The protocols are there, we just need to agree  
on how to use them.
