I would add two more notes to OSPFv3:

1) There is a bug in OSPFv3 implementation in current Quagga that makes
problems together with BIRD slightly different behavior. So currently i
would suggest not to mix BIRD and Quagga routers in OSPFv3. It will be
probably fixed in new Quagga release. Sees this for details:

As Quagga uses a different code for OSPFv2 (IPv4) and OSPFv3 (IPv6),
OSPFv2 users are not affected and in works OK.

2) OSPFv3 was not tested on *BSD systems. OSPFv2 should work on *BSD,
but generally i would suggest to keep version 1.1.7 for OSFP *BSD users.
We will address this in the next version.
