Yep, they lie.

Yep, it is.
However, you seem to be suggesting 4rd as an alternative to making a
policy change to accommodated TPIA. This is only really a viable
alternative in my opinion if 4rd is commercially available today.
I'm not asking do the Canadian cable guys have it; I'm asking if anyone
does? Completely outside of TPIA, I honestly would like to know if
there are commercially available 4rd solutions, or heck even functional
open source ones? I want to play with 4rd, I've been waiting patiently
I want to make IPv4 a legacy service of my IPv6 network. ;)
