The full GC PR is at;

"IPv6 [...] delivered over our global, MPLS-based backbone."

It's not clear whether they're doing 6PE over their v4/MPLS backbone, running v6 in parallel to v4/MPLS or running v6/MPLS (I don't think vendors support this).

At least one of these doesn't (IMHO) qualify as "native IPv6 [backbone]".
