So I would ask: why do you think you need to disable it?  By default,
the system will have no v6 addresses configured and should not incur
delays due to this.  Are you having a problem?

When disabling INET6, you surely also need to disable the stf
pseudodevice.  Arguably stf should have an #ifndef INET6/#error in it to
make this more obvious.
