NFS is site-specific service.
IPv6 is world-wide service.

Indeed, world-wide NFS is capable, but is somewhat ridiculous idea.

And more,
IPv6 is network layer feature,
and NFS is session and higher layer feature like FTP, HTTP, AFS and so on.

If IPv6 is disabled in IPv6-only environment,
any of FTP, HTTP, NFS does not work.
Disabling NFS causes minor impact compared with that,
because switching to FTP is very easy, as already pointed out.

NFS is for convenience, IPv6 is for life.

The same argument goes for device drivers.
Device drivers of storage devices are also for their lives.
