The PGM layer on Linux and Solaris, OpenPGM supports IPv6 for PGM however
Microsoft's implementation doesn't yet.  One solution is porting over to
Windows and that's currently part of the development version.

A lot of complexities arise when supporting mixed IP networks, should a
transport support say incoming messages on IPv6 and outgoing on IPv4 and
whether features such as IPv4 mapped address should be supported at all.

Another question is how to handle misconfigured hosts, the primary example
being a IPv4 host with a IPv6 address but no configured IPv6 nodename.
