10K isn't supporting IPv6 on PPPoE? I thought the 10K specialized in 
utilizing the IOS SR line. I've played with PPPoE and bridging on the 
7200s mostly. I need to kick up an ASR, as I hear it's specialized code 
line has much better IPv6 support than IOS SR. both XR/XE codes seem to 
be much more richly featured, especially for radius backending DHCP.
