I have things at work that is only reachable using IPv6. This is not of 
general interest to anyone, but it does make it annoying for me when I 
happen to be on IPv4 only as I have to perform extra steps to reach these 
IPv6 only resources.

I also have devices in my home I can only login directly to via IPv6, as I 
have opted not to have any IPv4 port forwards in my router.

So the best case you can probably make is that there are things out there 
that are IPv6 only, not just the kinds of services that most people would 
care about (since if they would, someone would want it as widely available 
as possible, this making it dual stack).
