While I won't speak to specific device makes/models, we at Comcast add a
device to the v6 list after we have tested and shown that it works. In my
experience, hearing "our device/router/software/whatever supports IPv6²
isn¹t generally specific enough and often doesn¹t mean much until it has
been tested. ;-)
