Ok, perhaps off your auth boxes would be better as you likely aren't
getting copies of the log from my (or anyone else's) recursive servers.

anyone atleast doing this?
I ran a web bug for a reasonably popular generic Dutch site for a while, and I discovered that around 0.16% of all requests (that's about 1 in 666) happened over IPv6.

Counting AAAA requests isn't very reliable, as some software performs these requests even if the system has no IPv6 connectivity. I believe Firefox does this unless IPv6 support is turned off. (It's turned on by default on nix and Win, off on Mac.)
