via normal IPV4 routes and IP's.. Till we have exclusive content on
IPV6 or it is a shorter,

it's not relevant (really) that 'you can still get there over v4',
because if your clients have ipv6, they'll ask for both, not
everything happy-eyeballs it's way to success, so
timeouts/frustration/pain occur.

I bet that's where the OP's original questions stem.
