Sorry for being so droll, I found it hard to restrain myself.

I do not belive that the selective (inclusive) return of A or A + AAAA
records on the basis of source address is likely to end on a particular
day. It may well for you and some others, which is fine, or you may find
it necessary again, or it may become a list of exclusions rather than
inclusions. I belive you're on record indicating as much. In any event
others may find it necessary.

Invidual service operators like you and I are likely to make decisions
on the basis of our instrumentation, we may well alter their behavior on
a uni or multilateral basis, and some of us may do so for world ipv6
launch. ipv4/v6 Transition is not something with a flag day however, and
I do not believe that the concerns embedded in the draft will be
fundamentally altered on 6/6/12.

yes, that doesn't imply that we're in concert however.
