I think it might be possible to formulate a requirement to access the 
ITS Code Hub on IPv6.


Currently, the above URL is not reachable on IPv6.

It is an ITS URL and all ITS specifications are based on IPv6, not on IPv4.

It is a DoT URL and I DoT promotes IPv6.

It is a .gov URL and I think also the .gov promotes IPv6.

Surprisingly though, the above URL does not use IPv6.

I must say that in the country where I live the gouv.fr also promotes 
IPv6 to a certain extent even though few if any of its URLs are on 
IPv6.  But, at the same time I could spot a few Internet organisations 
in several countries whose URLs do work on IPv6. (RIPE, UKNOF, NANOG, 
potentially others).
