You might find the opposite is true, though. Many dual-stack clients try 
both IPv4 and IPv6 and use whichever works best:


In other words, adding IPv6 might sometimes completely avoid problems 
for your customers (saving you time), because it makes some IPv4 
problems no longer noticeable.

I'm confident that adding IPv6 support to all sites my company hosts 
reduced the number of "I can't reach a site on your servers" complaints, 
simply because there are two available network paths to our servers for 
most Comcast customers, customers on 4G connections, etc.

 From my perspective, IPv6 has added a widely-adopted form of network 
redundancy as an unexpected side-effect. "Neat!"
