Canada and IPv6 (was: Ars Technica on IPv4 exhaustion)

6rd is in my opinion a band-aid solution, I don't see the point of offering IPv6 if it requires IPv4. native IPv6 should be offered where possible.

We offer native IPv6 to all our DSL customers but only on an opt-in basis, we're although unfortunately unable to offer IPv6 over Cable since we still depend on a certain incumbent...

Videotron (AS5769) is offering 6RD (RFC5969) to all residential customers, if their gear supports it. (DHCP option 212)

(But our MGMT still calls it beta for now.)
