	given that the IANA had previously actively discouraged
	AAAA requests and there was no client request for the service,

	it was disabled.

	given that:
		) there is a formal report from RSSAC/SSAC showing
	 	  no ill effects
		) IANA has agreed to accept four root AAAA records
		and most important...
		) a client requesting we provide the service

	you should find 2001:478:65::53 is reachable and responsive
