Re: ICANN registrar supporting v6 glue?

I would like to support v6 so a native v6 only user can still communicate with my network, dns and all, apparently in practice that is not easy to do, which is somewhat ironic given all of the v6 push lately. It also seems like the roots are not even fully supporting this properly?
What possibly can be done to get the root zone "really" available on IPv6? http://www.root-servers.org/ lists a few root servers as having IPv6 addresses, so "really" means having
for i in a b c d e f g h i j k l m; do dig $i.root-servers.net aaaa +norec; done
return at least one AAAA in the answer section.
What's the hold up? What's getting worked on? Is there a dns-root-on-ipv6-deployment task force anywhere? Is there someone that can give an authoritative update on where we are on the road to being able to accomplish what is requested above? Part of my reaction is to the quip "given all of the v6 push lately" juxtaposed with NANOG 40 that barely mentioned IPv6 in the agenda.
If we can't get one application (DNS) to do IPv6 how can we expect the ISPs to just up and deploy it? I would suspect that getting the roots - or just some of them - to legitimize their IPv6 presence would be easier than getting ISPs rolling.
