And just how are you going to make all of us small ISPs, or the big ones
for that matter, do that?
I don't disagree with you, but I think the conversation needs to
continue assuming that is not going to happen.
And that may not be what happens within a large organization that uses
private connections to consolidate connects to the Internet.

Note the multiple prefixes. IPv6 is not just IPv4 with bigger addresses.
If you want to give your printers, etc. stable IPv6 addesses use ULAs.
Better yet, just subscribe to an ISP that will give you a static prefix.
