Interesting. So much for their "IPv6 doesn't cost extra anymore!" claim
they sport today. Going to have a chat with our AM/SE about that. :-)

The ERX ("E-Series") license was actually $50.000 list last time I
looked. It's $0 nowadays indeed.
Well, I guess they got their share of extra margin from .gov and
.co.cn/jp when JNPR really had a significant competetive lead in providing
usable IPv6 implementations (at least on their own gear... IPv6 support
on ERX was very limited until recently - can't comment on stability).
