Why is your company treating IPv6 turn ups as a sales matter?

Exactly.  Actually, I would go one step farther, if you don't have
native v6 as a standard feature, you aren't offering "Tier 1" (whatever
that is) internet access and are offering only a subset of the Internet.
There really isn't an excuse for the major providers not to be
ubiquitous v6 native at this point.  I agree, v6 should be "standard
internet", not anything special or premium.  In fact, customers should
be demanding discounts for v4 only service.  It just isn't worth paying
good money for substandard capability.
