I've heard many reports of apple not supporting DHCPv6 up to 10.7.  After  
much digging, I have found a single report of it working in 10.8.  So, if  
you're up-to-date, you wouldn't notice it either. :-)

Just providing an example of AT&T Uverse lunacy that hasn't resulted in  
millions of customers leaving.  If you want an IPv6 example, their recent  
2wire firmware update that broke proto-41 tunnels has met with an equally  
fervent "gee-whiz, att" response.
