No, but I can imagine there are currently IPv4-only platforms that probably don't
support IPSEC, and when they are upgraded or superseded to IPv6-enabled platforms they
or their successors will then be capable of IPSEC, probably over IPv4 as well since
the code will already be there.

lots of probables and imagines, because I haven't done extensive testing either
