It appears to accept it:

l3-1002x(config)#router ?
  bgp       Border Gateway Protocol (BGP)
  eigrp     Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)
  isis      ISO IS-IS
  iso-igrp  IGRP for OSI networks
  mobile    Mobile routes
  odr       On Demand stub Routes
  ospf      Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)
  ospfv3    OSPFv3
  rip       Routing Information Protocol (RIP)
l3-1002x(config)#router bgp 65001
l3-1002x(config-router)#neighbor remote-as 65002
l3-1002x#sh ip bgp sum
BGP router identifier, local AS number 65001
BGP table version is 1, main routing table version 1

Neighbor        V           AS MsgRcvd MsgSent   TblVer  InQ OutQ Up/Down  State/PfxRcd        4        65002       0       0        1    0    0 never    Idle

Since it's on, let's see if I have to pay more for IPv6…

l3-1002x#sh bgp ipv6 neig
BGP neighbor is 2001:1900:2100::1E47,  remote AS 65002, external link
  BGP version 4, remote router ID
  BGP state = Idle

Seems not.  That's good.

Also full output of "sh license" is here (I love it when I guess at a 
command and it's correct):

This might as well be greek to me.  I have a lot of reading to do on
licensing I think.
