Uh, this is pretty much the chicken and egg issue. The reason you 
don't see alot of transit is because the users don't have IPv6 yet. 
Those of us stuck with LM transit can only beg and plead futilely for 
someone with IPC to actually just enable IPv6 on their PPPoE 
concentrators - I suspect though there is a more sinister issue that 
SAIX intercept that away from them, but it's so shrouded in mystery no 
one seems to give a technically sound answer as to why 
IS/Verizon/MTN-NS/SAOL or others can't just... turn it on. Others have 
better answers like that some of the edge routers can't dual stack 
properly - and some poorly purchased RAS equipment might actually not 
support it at all.

You also say these are experimental? Why, if as you say, it as been 
worked on for so long is it still experimental?
