That's because the 'v6 network' is broken enough that putting AAAA records on sites that need to be well reachable is a bad idea.

For example, due mainly to Vista's 6to4 tunnelling stuff (based on researching a random sample of users), I'd lose about 4% of visitors to my web-sites if I were to turn on AAAA records.

For a transit provider, having an unreachable (or seemingly unreachable) web-site is a really bad idea.
