I'd almost be tempted to set up a few machines doing v6 only on the LAN, 
with some trivial to exploit telnet/SNMP access then invite them to scan 
the LAN and see if said machines are picked up.

My experience of these things a year or two ago was that most of these 
companies thought everyone had an internal flat IPv4 network in RFC1918 
space and that was that.  YMMV of course.
