FreeBSD "The FreeBSD Foundation and iXsystems announced today their commitment to support the efforts of World IPv6 Day to accelerate global IPv6 deployment. Earlier this year, the FreeBSD Foundation and iXsystems jointly awarded Bjoern Zeeb a grant to create an IPv6-only version of the FreeBSD and PC-BSD open source operating systems."

I still think that this is a waste of Resources. I mean in all honesty you are not going to use an IPv6 only Server anytime soon. If OTOH it is to test out IPv6 deployments without having to deal with IPv4 then thats a different issue. My two cents.

Obviously, we will need IPv6 equipment and an ISP that uses IPv6, but other than that we should be able to run the apps we are currently running, correct? Apps that use IPv4 will not run and those that offer IPv6 support will be hit-or-miss, depending on how well the IPv6 support is written, which is the purpose of the IPv6-only version of FreeBSD.
