Bidirectional charging station costs more than regular charging station. Latter costs tens of thousands, per one V2x connection.
Much much much more than "half a dozen of powerwalls".

There are several initiatives that will likely support V2X concepts at some time in the future. Nuvve is one of the leaders of aggregation software and has also supported limited hardware implementations. If EV proliferation EVer happens, the energy storage potential is simply too great to ignore (for grid stabilization, home/infrastructure resilience, business monetization, etc, etc.)
