Fine approach as long as the DSLAMs and CPE allow ether type 0x86DD to pass.

I just finished discussing with the one telco in my network that 
deployed PPPoE. All customers will bring their modem into the office, 
where the front desk ladies will flash the config to bridge mode. It was 
that or replace thousands of CPE that never will support IPv6 in routed 
mode.

Have a nice day.
