Play with IPv6 and is-is enough on a Cisco router, and you'll enable it
as a matter of practice too. It's the definitive way to say "yes, this
interface needs IPv6 active and I don't care if there's an address bound
or not". I forget the exact circumstances, but I ran into several
cases where I had undesired results and needed to manually enable IPv6
on an interface. Oh, and different versions of IOS behave differently
towards IPv6. Imagine that.
