You can use their reply to an IPv6 request as a bit of a bozo filter, 
much like the RFP discussed here used RFC 1149 to determine if the 
companies actually read and understood the RFCs they were expected to

I *love* using Bozo filters.  Anytime you can trick companies into 
revealing their true colors, you are a step ahead in the game.
