We should really talk to some apps people to figure out how important
this is. It's entirely trivial to shoot yourself in the foot today with
NAT or multiple addresses anyway, and then there is dual stack. How are
referrals going to work when a future participant in the communication
may be limited to one IP version, which happens to be the other one
than the one used by current participants?
It may very well be that apps and protocols need to be changed anyway
in order to work with IPv6, or IPv4+IPv6.
