LISP does not require your physical ISP to support LISP in order to receive service.  It is available in open source as well as low end CPE routers, in addition to larger, more expensive (and capable) routers sold by various vendors.

I don't know what you mean by universal, so I can't really respond to that.  However, if you'd like a list of LISP service providers to provide you the benefits of multi-homing in a non BGP environment, or to deliver IPv6 packets over an IPv4 intent connection, please contact me off line.
