My upstream ISP does not support IPv6

I've just been trying to persuade our upstream provider that they can 
actually get IPv6 addresses.  They seem to be operating under the belief 
that they can only get IPv6 addresses once they're running out of IPv4 
before going through the usual justification business.  It seems bizarre 
that they've specifically gone to the extent of testing and changing 
their infrastructure to ensure it's fully IPv6 capable, yet not go all 
the way and actually get a range or poll customers to find out if 
they're interested in one.

I sent them this link : 
https://www.arin.net/resources/request/ipv6_initial_alloc.html and 
brought their attention to point 1.  Yet to hear back from them..
