SO: Well you have a point and I actually do have v6 running on my box (just
that its not the one assigned by AFRINIC ;-) ), its the one I got from my
broker just for my testing purposes. My broker requires some documentation
in order to advertise my actual prefix and while its not a significant
requirement I do not want to go through such paper work for now especially
since I am not using it anyway.

My intention is that once my platform supports the feature i require and if
by that time my upstream provider still doesn't provide native v6, then i
will have to go through that process. Bottom line is that there isn't
enough motivation for me to go that far for now.


That is how we started.
