Maybe I left out an important point, which is that "for me" means hundreds of installations
including most of the historically most popular distros, Debian, *buntu, Mint, Fedora, openSUSE,
Mageia, Gentoo and a few others.

I have a hard time imagining a dependency on ipv6 to be able to boot, even including thin client or
PXE, but then I don't know anything of any prospect of booting from outside a firewall where ipv6
might be a sole option.
