I think you're still looking at an old version of the IPv6 Node Requirements. Check https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6434#section-11, specifically this bit:

Previously, IPv6 mandated implementation of IPsec and recommended the key management approach of IKE.  This document updates that recommendation by making support of the IPsec Architecture a SHOULD for all IPv6 nodes.

This was published in December 2011.
