Are there plans to overload the IP Type to support IPv6 addresses?

I was looking at the documentation for the IP type mapping, and it said just "ipv4":

Yea, it only supports ipv4 cause it translates it to a numeric value. You
can index the ipv6 value as a text not analyzed.

Yup, that's what we're doing for IPv6.
