Google as a ISP delivers IPv6 to its customers.  Google delivers
content over IPv6 to its customers.  While Google's main nameserver
names are still IPv4 only the machines are dual stacked and are
returning answers over IPv6 in certain countries.  You can almost,
but not quite be IPv6-only when communicating with Google.  Internally
Google is mostly IPv6-only.

Other ISP's should try to match Google's level of IPv6 commitment.
