The problem is twofold. First, if Google isn't going to index IPv6 content, no one cares if their content isn't available that way.

That's the thing .. google's crawlers and search app runs at layer 7, v6 is an addressing system that runs at layer 3. If we'd (the community) got everything right with v6, it wouldn't matter to Google's applications whether the content came from a site hosted on a v4 address, or a v6 address, or even both.

I don't think we have got everything right at all.
