I see three main ways Google might use IPv6 infrastructure
-- Using IPv6 for scanning IPv6-distributed web pages, at least for
-- Accepting search requests over IPv6 http for users who want that
-- Glue, internal applications, etc.
The first application is probably the most important - if there's
(ostensibly, at least) content on the web that's only available via
IPv6, they may still want it (though IPv4-only search engine users may
not be able to get it except via Google's cache.) Internal
applications might benefit from IPv6, but there's probably enough room
in IPv4 10.0.0.0/8 for Google, at least for a while. IPv6 web users
will need IPv6-to-IPv4 gateways for a while...
Note that this isn't my regular email account - It's still experimental so far.
And Google probably logs and indexes everything you send it.
