We had lots of fun with additional section processing for MX records and A and AAAA records being cached at different times. It meant that some of the time, only AAAA records ended up in the additional section. Exim assumed that additional section processing has been performed properly (because the AAAA RRset was present), and if the host had no working IPv6 connection, it could not deliver the message. In response to that, Exim was changed not to look at the additional section. Considering the cache manipulation risk, I think additional section processing is a failed approach anyway.
