So, how will this sort of thing affect traffic levels to the servers
in question? Will this affect stability on a v6only or v4-limited
site/network? (13 v4 servers, 4 v6 servers...)

How does a cache-resolver know that it's time to issue a query with edns0?

Having inconsistent information seems like it might cause more than
just troubleshooting headaches...
