Re: dynamic or static IPv6 prefixes to residential customers

that those addresses are static.

They can do this with a ULA prefix if they want (RFC 4193). It is both private and most likely (really, very, very 
likely) unique. This assumes they only want their printer or NAS to be accessible on their own local network.



That is the case in the vast majority of situations. Many users want to be able to access their home network resources remotely on occasion but they don't want everyone else to be able to and printers and other appliances have little if any security built into them. The paradigm of internal versus external networking is going to be very hard to educate past given that most users are comfortable with how it works today.
