That's a perfect proof against IPv6 deployment. Infrastructure

Ironic you should mention that, because if more protocols supported SRV,
the content providers could have a lot more control over the IPv6
transition. For example:
_http._tcp.example.com. SRV 0 99 80 www.example.com.
_http._tcp.example.com. SRV 0 1 80 www-ds.example.com.
www.example.com. A 220.127.116.11
www-ds.example.com. A 18.104.22.168
www-ds.example.com. AAAA 2001:db8::2
I.e., content providers could control/measure their probability of
failure. As www-ds.example.com's success rate improves, its weight can
