OK, I was able to "talk" to the dev who worked on this.

UPnP (for example) is an IPV4 only protocol so if you want UPnP (and a 
few other things) to work you must still provide an IPV4 address. If you 
don't care about UPnP (and the other things that are IPv4 specific) you 
don't need to provide an IPv4 address...

Have a nice day!


PS: IPv4 are the old 32-bit IP addresses, IPv6 the new 128-bit ones...
