[outages] Akamai DNS issues

Starting this afternoon our monitoring system recorded several 5 to 15
minute outages accessing some IPv6-enabled Akamai-delivered sites.  In each
case, where I could catch the problem while it happened, I could not resolve
the AAAA to an IPv6 address.

We and our upstream provider have over 10 servers of different flavors, and
they are all exhibiting this issue, though not Google or OpenDNS' servers.

Just two examples are below, but in each case, I get a CNAME back, but it
doesn't show an IPv6 address.  And also five from
https://www.digwebinterface.com/?type=SOA&colorize=on&useresolver=8.8.4.4&ns
=all&nameservers.  And also here:
https://www.whatsmydns.net/#AAAA/www.apple.com and here
http://www.preshweb.co.uk/cgi-bin/dns-propagation-tracker.pl?domain=www.appl
e.com&type=AAAA&serversmode=random&servers=&nsdomain=

Anyone else seeing the same?

I emailed Akamai's tix address, but have not gotten anything back other than
the auto-responder.
