Is there any IOS for 7200 today that does DHCPv6-PD with automatic
route insertion?

We don't need IPv6 PBR (yet), but I can see us use the DHCPv6-PD bits
eventually.  (Which can be worked around in our case by tightly 
integrating DHCPv6 and Radius, so the router already knows from Radius 
which networks to route - but it still might come in handy).

Of course if Cisco actually does this (abandon the 7200 before delivering
all that is needed for proper IPv6 broadband termination) some people
might remember this on their next purchasing decision...
