It requires touching code, (hopefully) testing that code, deploying it, training customer support staff to answer questions, updating documentation, etc. Presumably Netsol did the cost/benefit analysis and decided the potential increase in revenue generated by the vast hordes of people demanding IPv6 (or the potential lost in revenue as the vast hordes transfer away) didn't justify the expense. Simple business decision.

	once, years ago, Netsol -did- have a path for injecting AAAA records. It was prototype
code with the engineering team.  I had records registered with them.  Have since sold the domains
and they moved to other registries.   But they did support it for a while.
