That was my impression as well, why RIP, who knows. I could be wrong, but I am guessing that needing that, precludes being able to run the SMC in bridge mode, so of course no IPv6 for us yet..
Actually, I have used the SMCD3G-CCR in bridge mode and had no problems with Comcast's native IPv4/IPv6 dual stack: »Re: [Business] IPv6 Availability
Of course, that did require me to stop using the /29 IPv4 block that I had been using. For my applications, I get by just fine using the five DHCP assigned IPv4 addresses that Comcast allows for business class accounts. I use DynDNS, and they support IPv6 using the internal client in my D-Link DIR655 router (that client allows updating multiple DynDNS hostnames with their associated IPv6 LAN IP addresses).
FWIW, you can see a diagram of my network at »www.dcs-net.net/image/DCS-networ ··· gram.gif

We can never have enough of nature.
We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pasturing freely where we never wander.
