[ppml] Any backbones that do route IPv6?

There was some speculation that backbones were or were not routing IPv6.
I've checked with Genuity and Qwest and both have told me they have no
plans to support the routing of IPv6.

Does anyone know of a backbone that will route IPv6?

I know this does not directly pertain to policy, but if it's true that no
backbones will route IPv6 than perhaps a policy needs to be created to
encourage them to do so.
