I don't know. You would need to ask Adrian about that.

That's not a surprise. BT are hardly ever "first movers" and can only be
expected to catch up when commercial demand is such that it is necessary
for them to do so. 

In the meantime (as Adrian notes in the page you link to above) BT do
not need to support IPv6. ISPs don't buy IP termination from BT for DSL
customers - they purchase L2TP delivery of PPP sessions. IPv6 sits
happily within the PPP session just as IPv4 does.
