It would be great if someone would produce a opensource javascript (or 
alike) snippet which would try to verify if IPv6 connectivity was broken 
and give people some kind of "your IPv6 is broken and this will cause you 
problems in the future, please press ok that you're aware of this"-window 
on top of the website in question.

Then websites who consider going A/AAAA could run that for 1-2 months and 
gather statistics and inform users well ahead of the time they turn on
