Yes, SRE3 does support DHCPv6-PD with automatic route insertion.
This abandonment won't be forgotten at product selection time. What's
another BRAS platform worth looking at?

Is there any IOS for 7200 today that does DHCPv6-PD with automatic
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...
did you enable IPv6 on something today...?
