Back then the reason for not serving via ipv6, was that AWS did not support ipv6 (http://help.rubygems.org/discussions/suggestions/44-ipv6).
However now Amazon supports ipv6 for both S3 and elastic loadbalancer.

    IPv6 is probably a good idea but it's not on our top priorities right now. It's something we'll probably look at later this year or 2018. We'll be sure to post a blog post and twitter updates when we roll it out! Thanks for the suggestion!

    This may be coming sooner than I thought. I'll update you when we're ready. :)
