Citrix 7.5 MS Direct Access and IPv6

Question,

We are proposing to deploy Microsoft Direct Access (2012) with access to Citrix XenApp 7.5. We are looking to deploy native IPv6 (dual stack), between the Direct Access Server and the Citrix Storefront Server(s). Will this work?

Research would suggest there are problems with this method of deployment? Due to Citrix's inability to run native IPv6.

Can anyone comment or provide evidence that this will work?
Or some guidance on how to deploy Direct Access with Citrix (real world scenarios and experience would be great).

Is there a compelling reason to use IPv6?

In general, I would stay away from IPv6 unless you have to go there.  I know some might say that makes me an old fogey, but I think of it as something that isn't broken (especially on the internal side) so don't fix it.

Because Direct Access only works over IPv6.

For anyone following up, we asked this question on Citrix and got no reply. So My colleague built it in Hyper V. And it does work with XennApp 7.5 :)

Just remember to add the correct IPv6 address to the web server running the IPv6 portal, DO NOT let it use its Link Local address. (fe80::)
