I keep trying to understand why the SMTP use of AAAA records should be any

nevermind seen consensus forming around it.

because conditions are different now than it was when RFC 974 was 
written, and the case that compelled fallback to A in RFC 974 does not 
significantly exist for AAAA.

I keep trying to understand why people keep expecting IPv4 to operate 
exactly the same as IPv6 without bothering to consider the differences 
between them.  (Or maybe I just answered my own question?)
