Well, it is. For instance spam detection software might think that class-E 
in mail header means obligatory SPAM. I don't know, I'm just speculating.

There can be problems outside of just IP headers. The SIP people have IPv6 
problems even if they're not doing IPv6 (since it can pop up in the 
SIP signaling payload). There are lots of protocols that carry this kind 
of information within the protocol, and it does leak.
