Well my point isn't to set up an IPv6-only website. My point is to
provide an IPv6 website without negatively impacting customers who have
IPv6 software but don't realize it.

Ok, so it so perhaps instead of providing only AAAA glue, I should
provide both A and AAAA (assuming my upstream permits it), and then I
could try distributing AAAA records for my website only over the IPv6
server? This IPv6 DNS server could distribute A as well, in case
there's some problem with website AAAA connectivity (mentioned
previously int he thread).
