They want a resolver giving AAAA:s to customers to query Google's NS's
from separate IPs of those that hand out A's. IIRC they once spoke about
these AAAA-returning servers to only use IPv6 to query as well,
essentially creating a AF separation: Customers get AAAA's only from v6
resolvers which query over v6 to v6 NS's.

There were a few threads about this a year ago or so.

Physical separation is not required.
