If all it took to have an IPv6 name server was an IPv6 address, this 
would be true. We all know that's not the case, and that running v6 
operations in a reliable manner takes work. Please don't trivialize the 
effort it takes to also run a stable v6 host for an operator who still 
doesn't see much need for v6. The job is not to convince the remaining 
TLDs is a no-brainer, it is to help them with the challenges that have 
prevented them from doing this already.
