Just add the IPv6 unicast address family to that neighbor.  Don't forget IPv6 specific route-maps or prefix-lists or whatever you use.
Ask your Akamai contact for examples, I'm sure they'd be happy to help.

Note that this BGP session isn't used for routing purposes.... you can think of it as a convenient method of communicating an ACL :)
