IPv6 and Jumbo Frames

Hello everyone,

we're just about to get a second 10GE connection to the german NREN and
are considering to use Jumbo frames on this link (around 9000 Bytes).

Does anyone have any experience how "jumbo-safe" the current IPv6
networks are (read: how many networks break pMTU-discovery but at least
do 1500 bytes through the whole path)?
