Is IPv6 bleeding edge, no, little used, yes. It's been around over 10
years! How long does something need to be available to stop being
"bleeding edge"?

I think perhaps you are mistaking "been available for over ten years"
and "been working well and mostly bugfree for ten years". Like I said
last night, when bugs such as this:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=503912
(getaddrinfo() doesn't deliver IPv4 mapped as IPv6 when asked for it).

were reported less than 12 months ago, IPv6 hasn't even been working
well and mostly bugfree for 12 months.
