"More better" approach?

	I'm wondering if there is something that specifies the "preferred"
way of using IPv6 when it comes to MX records.

	Currently, my personal domains has the following MX:

	0 - personalmachine-v6 (IPv6 address ONLY)
	10- personalmachine (IPv4 address ONLY)
	15- MX relay (Which many people now claim isn't required, but IPv4)

	I've caught flack before from mailing lists and others that having
my 0 level MX as IPv6 only "Just isn't right".  Some online "DNS Reporting"
services or other start to claim I can't be contacted, etc.

	Is there a "Best Practice" or "In MA's opinion" about this? I'm
looking to bring up our major mail server with an IPv6 address, and I
didn't know if continuing to make it the lowest MX is the best idea, or
just making the record contain a v4+v6 address. I'm not exactly sure what
my original reasoning was, or if its valid anymore.

			Thanks, Tuc
