LDPv6 Census Check

I would take either LDPv6 or SRv6 - but also need L3VPN (and now EVPN)
re-wired to use IPv6 NH.

I have requested LDPv6 and SRv6 many times from Cisco to migrate the
routing control plane from IPv4 to IPv6

I have lots of IPv6 address space. I don't have a lot of IPv4
address space. RFC1918 is not as big as it seems. Apparently this is hard
to grasp...

(This is primarily IOS-XE - can't afford the IOS-XR supercars)
