So what's wrong with using AAAA instead of (or in addition to) A records?

This gives at the very least ~80 bits, since it is still trivial to get 
a 48-bit prefix allocation.

Another option is to return multiple results, so that the full list is 
encoded in the sum of them?

With this option and ipv6 data you don't need many entries at all...
