[ipv6hackers] UPnP/IPv6 support in home routers?

Anyone can comment on the UPnP support for IPv6 in home routers?

Those that I have checked have UPnP support for IPv4, but not for IPv6
-- even when the home router does support IPv6.

Looking at UPnP itself, it seems to allow opening holes at the IGD, but
on a fully-specified (local ip, local port, remote ip, remote port),
which kind of sucks -- one would want to be able to whitelist all ports
for a given IP address, or at least (local ip, local port)
