But in no case did you pay for the addresses themselves unless you are silly enough to think that a person can own an 
integer.

IPv6 missed a great chance of doing away with all the
central waterfall trickle-down space distribution.

Luckily, /64 looks like large enough to bypass that
by offering address space sufficiently large while
co-existable with legacy addressing and routing. 

I hope eventually somebody will start
tinkering with mesh radios which also have GPS 
onboard (as most smartphones and tablets do).
24 + 24 + 16 bits are just enough to represent
a decent-resolution WGS84 position fix. Plus,
GPS gives you a pretty accurate clock.
