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...
