I'll go back to the part where I'm not a DNS expert. :)  I get 8
A's + 3 AAAA's in my attempts at a regular query.  Seems to be the
same across all servers that return AAAA's.  I'm using dig 9.5.0b2
for what it's worth.

Actually, just to be sure I set my EDNS0 packet size to 1400.
However, I agree with your assessment, using EDNS0 I get 100% of
the answers from all 13 servers over IPv4, and from all 6 IPv6
capable servers over IPv6.

There are still a number of servers returning zero AAAA's when
queried with a regular query over both IPv4 and IPv6.
