Sean, this is a very valid point. Can you please add an item on the
neutron meeting agenda today so we can discuss this? I'd like to talk
this through with the team to understand how we as a community want to
move forward here. Since we will have closed the IPV6 gap in Juno once
the stateful/stateless patches merge, we should be requiring all
plugins to support IPV6 and not skip these tests.
