Right. On a each local machine you can often override the default

Well - not on my *wildest* dreams, no :-) But in some of my more modest
dreams a draft RFC has appeared allowing the distribution of source and
destination address preferences via DHCPv6. In my dream, it even has a
name:

   draft-ietf-6man-addr-select-opt-08

Not a solution for SLAAC, though I suppose a similar extension would be
possible in SLAAC.

If you run a standard operating environment, the fact that source and
destination address preferences are configurable means you can put it in
your SOE right now.
