It's sad that we still don't have a technology that makes the endpoint
addressing transparent so that we don't have to get everybody who doesn't want
to deal with renumbering into IPv6 PI.

In every deployment I saw so far people have hardcoded IPv6 addresses somewhere
and didn't make a list of those places. Did you encounter better handling
