Agreed.  My v6 is actually pretty much ok, but it has 30 ms more
latency.  A lot of my mail and some web goes over it.

Sure.  ntpq does too.   I meant something more, because "geolocation" is
really "network topology location", and one's v6 location and v4
location are different.   But given that ntpd does dns queries over some
AF to a local resolver and the resolver might be dual-stack and use
either, the notion that geolocation hints obtained from a server using
one AF are valid for the other AF is both suspect and hard to work
