That doesn't compute considering all the XP machines with Teredo addresses 
that asked for my AAAA only content.

<http://www.ops.ietf.org/lists/v6ops/v6ops.2008/msg01582.html>

"Of the users getting v6 only gif from non-tunnel-space, 58% were from 
Proxad (free.fr I believe), and then on the list came UNINET, SUNET, FUNET 
(university networks in .no, .se and .fi) and Hurricane electric.

98% of Teredo users run Windows XP.
88% of 6to4 users run Windows Vista."

So 98% of Teredo users getting the v6only content (using DNS) was using 
WinXP, so it does seem it does AAAA lookups.
