That is up to the network enabling script to decide. :)
At the moment, the $network virtual facility is defined to mean the
scripts networking and ifupdown. If these script are initializing the
IPv6 stack, $network represent a working IPv6 stack.

I hope so to. But it is as far as I can see, not related to the
dependency based boot sequencing release goal. This goal is about the
order of the scripts, it does not specify their behaviour.
