Your stats (which are very interesting btw, thanks for doing the work) suggest that the number of clients that would make use of the AAAA record for a dual-stack service is about the same as the number of clients that would fail in the event that both A and AAAA were present. That's not exactly an incentive to content providers is it?

The last couple of days the ratio went down to less than 0.3% who would potentially get in trouble (factor is most likely less as the measurement method penalises later objects).

But yes, there is absolutely no upside to deploying IPv6 for content providers in the short term. It's like Y2K, there was NO upside to fixing it until December 31 1999.
