Summary: Not sure, IPv6 and Multicasting

Some web sites say to disable multicasting with IPv4 
as a security measure.

In looking over the RFC's for IPv6, IPv6 seems to
rely on multicasting to get quite a few things done.

Does this rule still apply to IPv6 or does
turning off multicasting with IPv6 cause a few
things to actually stop working.

Anyone actually using IPv6 and doing this?
