If you have enough IPv4 addresses for all servers...

There is somewhat of a desire among some large email operators to
push the rest of the Internet to domain-based reputation, but I am not
aware of anybody else penalizing IPv6 senders this way.

It is not "strictly" required, but as soon as the reputation for the IP
will decrease a bit (very much less than what would apply to a v4 IP)
then all mail with no domain-based reputation will be delivered to the
spam folder for a very long time.
