I'd attribute that spike to "people actively testing around for all
those participants actually working".

It was 2am +/- in the night in central europe (which has probably the
biggest IPv6 enabled eyeball population)... what do you expect?
Those who stayed up that late (I didn't) probably poked around at a
few sites, noticed nothing's blowing up in gross colors, and went to
bed. :-)

I'm not surprised at all about the pattern. I would have expected higher
amplitudes though, but given that major sites seem to deliver only
index.html via IPv6, not much of a surprise there as well.
