Actually the "B" part of IRB is pretty agnostic to IPv6, which is
good in itself (so IRB isn't confused by "IPv6" being "IP" as well).

I make use of that on an ATM/ADSL router that doesn't know IPv6, but
has a bridge-group from an atm sub-if to an FastE sub-if, bridging
IPv6 to a v6-capable router and routing IPv4 locally.  Cludgy, but
does the job :-)
