hard to read. suggested reword:   

   The concern is that a resolver using only a particular version of
   IP will be unable to resolve a name because somewhere in the chain
   of servers accessed during the resolution process, one or more of
   them will only be accessible only with the other version of IP.

Is "forwarder" the best name for this? Sounds to me like what a
"proxy" does. Any reason not to call it that?

What does this mean? What is there to "switch to"? Recursive servers
just do this.

In the normative references section, I have a hard time believing that
most (if indeed any) of the references are actually normative. Not
that it matters a whole lot though.
