Just thinking aloud, they may justify it based on
the fact that many ISPs they have colocated
servers with do not support IPv6 yet, so they end
up having to send that traffic through more costly routes.
That argument is a bit hollow though - they
should be taking a leadership role in adoption,
rather than putting up roadblocks.
