The choice we had for "J" was to give it an IPv6 address or none at 
all.  It was simply an opportunity to add one more machine that could 
answer on the IPv6 network (or to that fragment that could reach it). 
For those that care, the host assigned the "J" AAAA record was also a 
member of an IPv4 anycast cloud and just happened to have native IPv6 
transit available.

We are not taking a position on IPv4 vs. IPv6.  We want to offer 
services on both transports.  We are not in the business of promoting 
one or the other.  OTOH, it happens that our IPv6-only server has 
raised awareness of some to update their tools.  That is a nice side 
effect, but hardly our intention.

Discussing IPv4 address policy is like deciding what to eat on the Titanic.
