There are systems only using IPv6. We have four of them. I admit, this
is not very common but will be in the next few months. Nothing forbid
to have already IPv6-only system.

They are not dual-stack or don't use any NAT-PT or transition
mechanism to access IPv4 host.

Is it a big deal for Ubuntu people to setup an AAAA record and
pointing to a friendly mirror already hosting security update and
available in IPv6 ? (a virtual host need to be setup on those friendly
mirrors)

Feel free to move the ticket to the team managing the Ubuntu
network/mirror infrastructure.

Thanks for your feedback
