Don't know if it'll help or if this is simply old news to most, but
the whois systems (whois.internic.net/whois.crsnic.net) have AAAA
records and happily answer TCP/43 requests w/ the usual blurb, but all
the servers I've hit then fail to actually provide data and instead
the whois client (Ubuntu 13.04) simply time-outs.

Whois Server Version 2.0
Domain names in the .com and .net domains can now be registered
with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
for detailed information.
Servers that I've tried so far (all IPv6 addresses I got through
running 'host whois.crsnic.net'):
Anyone from NetSol care? It's not the end of the world, but it
certainly is quite annoying.. Judging by some complaints on the 'net,
looks to be a rather long-standing issue too (there's a Debian bug
#683187 which mentions similar issues from nearly a year ago..).
