Since Linode now provides native IPv6, I believe it would be appropriate to request DNS whitelisting so Google's services resolve to IPv6 addresses in addition to IPv4 when using the Linode resolvers.

I'm going to just flat out say no to this one, sorry.

Our measurements show that enabling Google over IPv6 can result in a small percentage of users experiencing problems or delays accessing Google services.

Do not want.

You can go straight to http://ipv6.google.com/, but that doesn't get you anywhere near everything over IPv6.

From a practical standpoint, Linode doesn't meet at least two of the requirements:

(1) Separate DNS servers for your IPv6 users (not shared with IPv4-only users)
(2) Users who have opted in to IPv6 services and know how to opt out if they experience problems with Google services

The opt-in requirement is a bit of a laugh nowadays, for sure. I should have snuck that into our wedding vows. Alas, it was hard enough yelling the part about there being no warranty either expressed nor implied.
