I see three main ways Google might use IPv6 infrastructure
-- Using IPv6 for scanning IPv6-distributed web pages, at least for
IPv6only pages
-- 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 for Google, at least for a while.  IPv6 web users
will need IPv6-to-IPv4 gateways for a while...
             Thanks;     Bill

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.
