Hi,

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

https://its.dot.gov/code/

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).
