Things like that are also part of IPv6 deployment in my opinion.

Some other South African universities sites I looked up were also 
IPv4 only.  Note that it is about the same for universities in the U.S.

I had discussions with people from the content side.  They 
acknowledged the issues and open discussed how these issues were 
fixed.  It's possible to have the same type of conversation with 
people from the service provider side.  That's the what have you done angle.
