Based on their tiny bit of surrounding text, apparently that's "Pass
Through", although that naming choice seems odd to me.  I'd call it
"native", but we're back to marketing at that point...

I agree with Daniel (above) on the noticeable lack of DS-Lite and/or 6rd.
  Chicken-and-egg situation regarding the most profitable to implement?
  Lack of development resources?
  Coming RSN?
...I was surprised to see anything at all, hence the share.
