This is a global world, and (maybe except for the chinese market), handset
vendors ship globally - so I bet that an Android handset that works well
in T-Mobile USA's and Verizon Wireless' network has enough IPv6 support
to work on your network as well...

OTOH, I have a number of Telco-branded devices here that can *not* do
IPv6, even if the original vendor firmware *does* IPv6.  So this is really
a matter of the Telcos telling their handset / USB / router vendors to
enable IPv6 in the build shipped to them.  So that wishlist makes sense
to have as a Telco, but I'm not convinced it's a useful IETF document
(I don't see Telcos following IETF or 3GPP recommendations in other 
fields either if they don't want to.  Like, implementing IPv6, which is
mandatory in the 3GPP specs since ever...).

have you enabled IPv6 on something today...?
