Just to clear the dead air...

I am using OSFPv2 for IPv4 uni and OSPFv3 for IPv6 uni.

I have found that all implementations which I have seen/been a part of/consulted for/advised, if using OSPF for their IGP in any way, do this.

On top of that, in most cases, this is in combination with iBGP.. e.g. Loopbacks and connecteds in OSPF(v2/3-4/6) and iBGP loop to loop full mesh + RRs. This is the common and best of both worlds that I see.

While I know this is not the answer to your question, I imagine you are going to see a bunch of +1s and a few 'why not use ISIS's which may essentially answer the question as "no". :)
