Yes.

Comcast, Cable Labs, Time Warner are doing pretty well at this now. Others there is room for improvement, but it's definitely better than a year ago.

Very little, but, most of those buy based on the "supported device" list from their carrier, so?

The inability to add customers to IPv4 will become a factor in this. 60% of the world's population still isn't on the internet and I expect a significant fraction of that will be coming on in the next 2-4 years.
