True, but the qualification to using that is very low.

I doubt it. I think manufacturers think of logos as being costs, not

However, some of them do think that DLNA and uPNP logos are important, and
the latest version of those require IPv6.
Extending other specifications to require IPv6 might also be useful,
although I admit I don¹t see how layer 2 protocols (IEEE 802) or
power-saving specs could be applied.
