Dear all,

RFC 2874 predicts the replacement of AAAA records (under the ip6.int zone) 
by A6 records (under the ip6.arpa zone).

However, the 6bone DNS reverse delegation seems to only implement the AAAA 
DANTE and the TEN-155 connected countries in Europe have started 
implementing the A6 delegation, with a fake root server.

Are there any plans on the 6bone to migrate?
