In some regions Google has revere DNS for IPv6 already:

Ryan-Rawdons-Work-MacBook-Pro:~ ryan$ traceroute6 ipv6.google.com
traceroute6 to ipv6.l.google.com (2001:4860:800f::67) from [redacted], 
64 hops max, 12 byte packets

They're doing it at about the same level as their IPv4 reverse DNS, 
that is, servers seem to have reverse DNS but intermediate hops in their 
infrastructure do not:

Ryan-Rawdons-Work-MacBook-Pro:~ ryan$ traceroute mail.google.com
traceroute: Warning: mail.google.com has multiple addresses; using 
72.14.204.83
traceroute to googlemail.l.google.com (72.14.204.83), 64 hops max, 52 
byte packets
