I guess there should be a time out for this. i.e after waiting for a
pre-determined amount of time (which will of course be implementation
dependent)the DNS-ALG should assume that a V6 response is not going to come
and forward the mapped v6 response along with the v4 response.

The only problem here may be changing the vast number of IPV4 clients.
since deployment of v6-only and/or dual-stack clients is still in the
pipeline, modification may not be that big a task especially considering the
benefits that may be reaped out of this.in fact, modifying ipv4 clients may
not be required by making sure that the dns-alg forwards the v4 reply first,
so that if the client, if v4, accepts this response and discards any further
responses (as it will normally do).
