They exist are starting to exist and the feature sets keep expanding. I
just wish that all vendors would stop shipping IPv4 only equipement.

For example the D-LINK DIR-615 does just about everything upsteam
except SLAAC which you want if you want to insert it into the middle
of your network and not at the border.  I havn't explictly asked
D-LINK about SLAAC upstream but I couldn't find it in the manual.
Newer firmware I believe does PD (again not in the manuals on the
web).

D-LINK claim they have routers that do 6rd.

The DIR-615 is priced within a home budget but at the upper end.

I was looking to buy one for home.
