There's no specification requiring or recommending either of these approaches, either for v6 or v4 AFAICS so you can't depend on that behaviour..
Do you have specific data to back up "every other router vendor..." ? I doubt it's quite as uniform as that, but if so, it would certainly be a major motivation for a change.
