I meant to ask this at a nanog or this IETF... why don't some of the
larger content providers (google, msn, yahoo, to name 3 examples) put AAAA
records in for their maint content pieces? why don't they get v6
connectivity from their providers (that offer such services) ? There are
starting to be more and more folks with v6 connectivity... it'd be
interesting as a way to drive usage on v6, eh?
