You've lost one more possibility.

So, I have a choice:
1. Drop this stupid ISP and get one that does IPv6.
2. Tell them they are stupid and ask them to upgrade.
Sorry, but you forgot one more choice:
3. Forget about crazy site which by someone's folly only have IPv6 address.
Because 99% users sites choose option number 3 (DJB plan or no DJB plan) there are no need to think about these silly AAAA-only sites. ISPs know this full well.
Right now, the onus of IPv6 upgrade is on each and every customer.
And this is not a problem at all: either you have IPv6-capable OS like Windows7 (where you only need to connect to the IPv6 internet to use IPv6) or you have something like PS3 or XBox360 where IPv6 does not work because developers just decided to ignore it. In both cases DJB plan is not needed at all. Sure, if you have large organization you'll need to do something, but "IPv6 works by default" approach will not help there at all: a lot of such organizations (most of them?) disable direct access to internet and ask uses to use proxy with authorization - and all that must be changed for IPv6 anyway.
