Well, there's a bit of a problem there.

Near as I can tell, to get IPv6 support you need to use IGDv2.

Unfortunately, if you want your Xbox or Playstation to be able
to work, you need to be using IGDv1.

Guess what almost everybody chooses to do?

(Been there, done that - had to rebuild miniupnpd for OpenWRT/Lede
because it built with v2 by default)
