A good number of ccTLDs are run by local organizations with servers in their own country, so I wonder what level of IPv6 deployment there is in such countries... they might not be able to get native IPv6. 
A curious note is that some ccTLDs run their ASCII TLD registry but not their IDN registry, so that might explain cases where IPv6 support is different between them.

Both are already LACTLD members, so they could use the LACTLD anycast cloud which happens to have v6:
a.lactld.org has address
a.lactld.org has IPv6 address 2801:14:a000::10

Perhaps eligible for AFNIC Francophone support initiatives

Not currently LACTLD members, but eligible for membership which would include LACTLD anycast services.

Not eligible for LACTLD membership with this name and ISO code, only when changed to "Malvinas". ;-)

Curious cases since their ICANN region is Europe, even though physical region is LAC. Perhaps AFNIC could help.
