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.

Happy hacking,
