Here I don't see any v6 for either facebook.com or www.facebook.com (I
run my own resolver from within comcast, and the resolver and my boxes
are all v6 enabled and dual-stacked, have been for over a year).

I did see a cute pair of puns in cisco's v6-day address:
cisco.v6day.akadns.net has IPv6 address 2001:420:80:1:c:15c0:d06:f00d
(check the last 32 bits, and the 32 before...)
