Re: IVP4, IVP6 Ehhh

reading out and IVP6 address over the phone would leed to errors.

Not necessarily, especially if the addresses are well chosen. Here's a couple OpenDNS server addresses:

208.67.222.222

2620:0:ccc::2

It's not obvious to me that the second one is harder to get right than the first. I'll grant that it's less familiar, though.
