We have no plans of delivering IPv6 only support at this time, however that may change based on a number of factors, including demand.

Fair enough! In that case we will look into alternatives for these customers at the moment. If you are interested in actively pursuing it, we are open to helping you with infrastructure and knowledge - just give me a ping.
