In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

No, they don't support it. It's easy, really: you claim that IPv6 is simpler to process and so it should provide performance boost. But let's check the facts
up to 60 million packets per second (Mpps) of IPv4 unicast forwarding traffic and up to 30 Mpps of IPv6 unicast forwarding traffic
Oops? Looks like simple and logical way to save half of equipment is to just disable IPv6 - and this is what ISPs are doing... It does not matter if hardware has support for IPv6 or not if it's disabled.
