UPnP/IPv6 support in home routers?

Anyone can comment on the UPnP support for IPv6 in home routers?

Those that I have checked have UPnP support for IPv4, but not for IPv6
-- even when the home router does otherwise support IPv6.

Looking at UPnP itself, it seems to allow opening holes at the IGD, but
on a fully-specified (local ip, local port, remote ip, remote port)
basis, which kind of sucks -- as one would want to be able to whitelist
all ports for a given IP address, or at least (local ip, local port).
