Interesting. Can you disclose who handled that or how you reached the 
right person, as the last response I heard of from Joker was "Doesn't 
understand the concept of glue records, thinks you want managed hosting 
which does support AAAA records"

I'd rather update that to green and know how to get them to set it up 
though for http://www.sixxs.net/faq/dns/?faq=ipv6glue, which would also 
mean that we can update ns{1|2|3}.sixxs.net to have AAAA records which 
would be neat.
