To be honest, I will have no idea if their networks support it. It was
just an idea to have as a nice to have when we add a new host entry,
that an AAAA record be created. However I now see the failings of
this. If an IPv6 enabled host requests the Ipv6 record from us, and we
give them one, and they try to connect but that customer is not IPv6
connected, well then there could be issues.

I must look into getting IPv6 connectivity myself.
