[SURBL-Discuss] rbldnsd & IPv6?

Anybody have experience running rbldnsd (serving surbl zones) on
IPv6 addresses?
Clearly the data -in- the zones are IPv4 values but the servers
can communicate using IPv6 addresses.

I'm in the process of a general config refresh & IPv6 deployment
and noticed that the surbl dns servers lists that my copies are in
(a.surb.org & b.surbl.org) only contain IPv4 addrs (A records), no
AAAA records.

So is this just inertial or is there a reason for not listing IPv6
addrs for rbldnsd servers? I did a local test with rbldnsd-0.996b
on SLES11-SP1 and it seems to run/answer on IPv6 just fine.
