Pardon, but this is utter, total and complete nonsense.

No IETF work item that has anything to do with "ambiguous" names has any 
relationship whatsoever with IPv6; the only "ambiguity" permitted in DNS 
for IPv6 is the same one as in DNS IPv4: foo.com is different from foo.net.

You've been misinformed.
