OSPF vs IS-IS

Well up until not too long ago, to support IPv6 you would run OSPFv3 and for IPv4 you would run OSPFv2, making IS-IS more attractive, but that is no longer the case with support for IPv4 NLRI in OSPFv3.
The only reason in my opinion to run IS-IS rather than OSPF today is due to the fact that IS-IS is decoupled from IP making it less vulnerable to attacks.
