If you're talking about a marketing push from ISPs, etc., then you're right.

But in the original context of equipment vendors, I think it is entirely 
appropriate for vendors to tout their equipment's features, whether it's 
IPv6, OSPF, BGP, or 802.11n.  If they don't even *list* IPv6 as a 
feature, that says something not-so-good...
