Yep. In many countries (e.g. in Russia) there are almost no ISPs with
IPv6, so from time to time I disable IPv6 support in custom builds.
Also, disabling IPv6 support saves some storage space on resource
constrained devices (e.g. whole ath25 target).

I do not think it is a good idea to drop this option today.
