I've got an idea that just fell out of my brain for web content providers to get a handle on their 'ipv6-ability' - how many eyeballs they would lose by adding www AAAA records.
And then compare the hit-rate for the two. Perhaps also analyse things like X-Forwarded-For headers to see if HTTP proxies are being used, and so on.
Maybe an IPv4 POST happens with some kind of load time results, etc.
One could use a system like this to pop up a message to those who would become unreachable, and say "Follow these steps so that you can reach us next week when we turn on www AAAA records". Or perhaps, "Contact your ISP helpdesk for assistance".
My initial thought was "That means an additional GET per page, that means lots of server+network load!", but Yahoo! (for example) appears to do 35 requests for me to get their homepage, and the responses are all larger than 0b.
Of course, has this sort of thing been done before?
