I respectfully disagree with the 'know best', I've seen many customers who don't know the right choice and it takes a bit of time to learn the right way.

With so many people already doing IPv6 on their main sites, I'm hard pressed to believe this won't break people who aren't already broken.

You can't cater to everyones broken network.  I can't reach 1.1.1.1 from here either, but sometimes when I travel I can, even with TTL=1.  At some point folks have to fix what's broken.
