IPv6 is not a "nice to have" think.
If you are using OpenWrt and consider IPv6 a nice to have thing you 
should do some reading and network understanding as it seems it lacks 
some very fundamental one to you.

I see people often complaining they don't get IPv6 from their ISPs and 
what is the way they expect to do ? Disabling IPv6 on their builds. 
Certainly not.
