ip6tables and multiple possible source addresses

Someone must have already figured this out; I'm feeling "virtual Monday"
pretty bad right now :-(
With IPv6 a host can have "lots" (more than 1) of possible IPv6
addresses to use as the source address. I've read the RFCs, so I can
(usually) make a good guess as to which one will be used, but...
When writing a host-specific ip6tables rule, which address do you need
to list? All of the possible Global Scoped addresses?
This seems...... awkward (and error prone).
Am I missing something, or is it that bad?
