If all hosts in a class (say the ftp.CC.debian.org ones) support ipv6,
that should be recorded on the mirrors page.  Otherwise, maybe it is a
good idea to include ipv6 and ipv4 markers as suggested.  Here is the
suggestion email to debian-www that I saw:

Hi,

as far as I know not all CC mirrors support IPv6.
I also do not believe that this is gonna be the case in near future. 
It's also not yet practicable to define v6 connectivity as a mandatory 
requirement for CC mirrors.

I recently updated my AAAA list [1] which is unfortunatelly not 
representive. You can download the script I've written to generate that 
list from here:

Cheers

Actually, there's been a mistake - bug #385210 talks about a wifi hardware
compatibility list. It's #430155 that talks about IPv6. Let's redirect this
discussion there.

The latter should be fine, IMO.

I'm not sure if discriminate is the right word here... do we want
choose-mirror to only indicate that a mirror has IPv6, or do we want
it to remove a mirror from the displayed list if the client has only IPv4?

If the latter, we absolutely need to distinguish between "IPv6: yes"
and "IPv6: only".
