OK- that's useful to understand, AAAA is just a crossover for v6  
addressing when querying normal v4 nameservers.
I see that I can just add AAAA records easily to my nameserver.

So it's really at the registrar, and their reporting to the IPv6 TLD.

most importantly out of hacking interest, and future-thinking needs.   
I mean, why do we need the IPv4 internet in the first place?  :)
