I've seen this, too. My assumption is that carrier finance departments have not yet heard of v6, and hence v6 peering to some degree is being done on an engineering level optimising performance rather than minimising cost. (Or perhaps the finance people are cleverer than I think, and they're building relevance before they attach value to it.)
