A search for IPV6_V6ONLY in the FreeBSD Handbook yields nothing.  You'd 
think the brokenness would at least be mentioned in the handbook.

A similar search of the FreeBSD FAQ yields a bunch of hits but none that 
really mention the RFC brokenness.

The only place where I've seen this behaviour mentioned in the past is in 
bug reports.  And the responses to those were that the non-compliant 
behaviour was preferred but would/should be more clearly documented. 
Years later, the documentation is still lacking.
