Clearly, you wouldn't deploy this box for a native-IPV6 app. I am guessing
Cisco is betting this box will have an upgrade available or be obsolete by
the time the majority of their customers want to pass 30Mpps IPV6.
Heck, a PC-IPV6 router will move more than 200Kpps, but I don't want to get
on that horse.
