I personally use the RasPi as a border router and gateway with the 
openlabs transceiver. Unfortunately I haven't had the time to test 
with the new RasPi 3B, yet. 

This would be bad news, if my favorite setup isn't working with Pi3 
anymore. I just ordered a Pi3 myself and will start testing next week,
I'll report back ASAP. 

I assume you use latest Raspbian-Linux, with standard Kernel 4.4 and
DTS overlay [1] or a custom (self-compiled) Linux-Kernel based on 
bluetooth-next (btn) branch?
