Unfortunately, I think you'd be surprised and how few consumer grade
CPE type devices support IPv6 'enough' to do proper dual stack.

Internode are the only provider I'm aware of that support IPv6 on ADSL
services and last time I checked, there were only 3 CPE vendors
(Billion, Netcomm and Fritz!) on their "these are OK" list -- i.e.
devices that do things like DHCPv6-PD, IPv6CP (for PPP) etc.

It's definitely getting better, though.
