I strongly object to this petition for the same reason I objected
to the original proposal, the dual stack requirement.

I know there are folks who have deployed IPv6 enabled services by
having all IPv4 stuff in one data center, and all IPv6 stuff in a
second datacenter.  Different servers, differennt load balancers,
etc.  These folks are good actors, as they are "fully IPv6 enabled"
when accessing them over the Internet.  This policy would punish
them though for failing to deliver the service on the same "interface".

I think a more generic proposal that required some level of IPv6
deployment without specific technologies (dual-stack) in it might
win my support, but as-is, no way.
