I know I've been asked this question countless times, and I know I've mentioned it on IRC, but for the life of me, I can't recall any explanation other than "that's just the way we've always done it"...

If this is so, it makes me wonder if the first IPv6 address was given a new hostname simply because the person adding it didn't realize that both types of records can point to the same hostname. We've got a lot of folks setting up tunnels in the past couple years, and I expect that in the next couple years we will see a move towards ISPs providing native IPv6 addressing, so this is something that really should be resolved now, so we can get a policy posted to answer further questions...

If you want each IP to get a unique fqdn maybe a nicer approach would be
something like ns{n}{.ipv6}.{tld}.dns.opennic.glue

Example: = = 2a01:298:3:100::14

at least this way the numbering system doesn't just increment so quickly
with servers with both IPv4/IPv6.

But realistically should simply have both A and AAAA
records assigned to it.
