Yes I know. I'm already using an updated sources.list pointing to
ftp.belnet.be (serving the security mirror) in IPv6. In such case, I
don't need any dual-stacked host.

My point was just as security.ubuntu.com is the default sources.list,
this one should also serve it in IPv6.

It's up to you to decide but it personally think sooner is better than too late.

Thanks and enjoy your evening,
