Perhaps not relevant for residential users, but there's one Android 
developer who refuses to support DHCPv6[1], which stops it working on some 
enterprise networks. And Windows 10 only added RDNSS support in the most 
recent update, which came out less than a month ago.

[1] https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/36949085 now requires a Google 
account for no good reason. I recommend reading it though if you like to 
see how one man can single-handedly prevent technical progress to more 
than a billion devices through sheer stubbornness.
