Seriously? As in production, money-carrying traffic? No.

On nanog conferences, it is always talked about, but it is a 
chicken-and-egg problem: providers will not sell IPv6 until there's 
customer demand. There's no demand, cause, well, why'd you *want* ipv6.

Ummm...If you want AAAA records, just have your nameserver serve them up.
If you want your *glue* to be AAAA - well, its a bad idea - nobody could 
get to anything in your domain if you have only AAAA glue.
