Speaking strictly for myself, we didn't "forget". First of all,
that's not what World IPv6 Day was supposed to be about -- it's not about
ipv6-only users, it's about dual-stacking content (if your ISP doesn't
have enough ip's to dual-stack their recursive resolvers, you have
bigger problems right now :) )..
Also, and more importantly, our data shows that 0.5% of the users can't
resolve hostnames if we enabled AAAA glue on all resolvers... And, before
somebody asks, I don't have any data on what happends if you enable
v6-glue to only 1 of your NS's though :)
