That's the thing .. google's crawlers and search app runs at layer 7,  
v6 is an addressing system that runs at layer 3.  If we'd (the  
community) got everything right with v6, it wouldn't matter to  
Google's applications whether the content came from a site hosted on  
a v4 address, or a v6 address, or even both.

I don't think we have got everything right at all.
