mikrotik support for ipv6 is still dodgy: recursive next-hop is not
supported in bgp/ipv6:

...  and OSPFv3 routes with the local-address flag set are dropped:

Between the two of these feature deficits, ipv6 isn't a runner on this
platform in a SP environment.  Both problems are due to be resolved in
routeros v7, but the release date for this is elusive.

Also, the bgp stack is single-threaded and the individual core speeds
are relatively low, so operating these devices in the ipv4 dfz can be
troublesome.
