I fully agree! It makes me wonder who has asked Oracle to provide IPv6 listeners and name resolution in the first place. I wouldn't really recommend turning it on this "deep" in the stack. You could have IPv6-> IPv4 conversion in the application/load balancer layer if the application has to be accessible from the outside world. For anything that stays inside IPv4 will be enough for a long time.

Maybe there are reasons to simplify the stack and use IPv6 throughout?
