Yeah, Android seems to be a bit lacking in the IPv6 department... :-(

This worked nicely on the IPv6-only + NAT64/DNS64 wifi at RIPE67 - 
configuring a bogus IPv4 address, no IPv4 default gateway, and manually
entering the IPv6 DNS64 server.  But of course that was just a stopgap 
to enable testing the NAT64 environment, not something I consider 
"production ready".
