It seems to be documented in the man page:

http://manpages.debian.net/cgi-bin/man.cgi?query=bridge-utils-interfaces&apropos=0&sektion=0&manpath=Debian+testing+%28wheezy%29&format=html&locale=en

"(...) Multiple stanzas of a bridge definition are currently not 
supported, so if you want to add a ipv6 and a ipv4 to a bridge do it all 
in one definition by using the "up" option. If however you still want to 
use  multiple stanzas or would like to read more on this bug you can see 
it at http://bugs.debian.org/319832";

There should be a workaround in the bug you (and the man page) mentioned.
