Yes, but not VRRPv3 for IPv6 (at least in the code base we've rolled
out, haven't investigated if it's in some sort of 15.6T or later).

Right, so why is there no HSRPv2 on ASR920, or EIGRP on NCS5000, or static
LSPs on 6500?  These are all control plane features, independent off the 
underlying hardware.

I fully understand hardware limitations, coming from a world full of
6500 :-) - and the 6500/7600 split was a good example of "no, these lacking
features have nothing to do with hardware capabilities".

Things like missing EIGRP or HSRPv2 cannot even be properly explained
with BU in-fighting (like, OTV vs EVPN) if the code is already there for
the OS used...
