Really?  Show me what an IPv6 capable Mac or PC does when it receives an
AAAA record in a DNS request submitted on an IPv4 network. (no, don't show
me.  But acknowledge that this isn't as simple as you're making it)

IPv6 has been most popular operating systems for a while.  Older operating
systems, like Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 handle AAAA DNS traffic
just fine over IPv4 transport, including normal DDSN registration of hosts.
