This document states that the IETF will stop working on IPv4, with certain exceptions. While this document is controversial and concerns have been expressed regarding the wisdom of adopting it, I don't see any security concerns related to adopting it. In fact, the document clearly states that "the IETF needs to continue to update IPv4-only protocols and features for vital operational or security issues." Therefore, I don't foresee any security issues related to adopting the document.
