If Cisco won't do a good job of RBE on the 7206VXR, I may just need to stick with PPPoEv6 on the SR train.  I have that successfully working in a test bed.

This is same solution they've given for the 7206 and other traditional 
IOS platforms. I haven't checked, but all the RBE/unnumbered vlan 
support for IPv6 with proxy-ND, better radius backend for DHCPv6, and 
supposedly IA_TA support for DHCPv6 will be in the ASR only. The 
features in IOS SR train are somewhat functional but extremely limited.

If I find myself having to spend money on ASRs, I may just spend the 
money replacing them with Juniper. Only reason I haven't is that I 
haven't needed to spend the money at all.
