They have been so far, yes. However ipv6 day should have given them a pile
of useful telemetry about actual access patterns on the day. If these data
indicate that adding AAAA records tends not to cause a lot of disruption,
then a reasonable medium term goal would be to see an end to whitelisting
and just provide AAAA records to all.
After all, having AAAA records on content provider sites is actually a very
early step for ipv6 acceptance. Getting users to actually use them is a
much more difficult problem, and getting end-users to the situation where
they may no longer be fully dependent on ipv4 is way off in the
