Fully agreed. I have no problem being in 6PE until fork-lift in some future to
IPv6 core and 4PE.
Signalling AFI in core and AFI sold to customer have little codependency.

People have too sentimental view on this, if you label your IPv4 it is silly
not to run 6PE, you're just creating complexity and removing functionality.
