Isn't there a Mac Mini "Server" running OSX? If only seen on once and my
guess would be that most admins don't know and don't care about RAs,
temporary addresses, PTR records, ... Same for admins of small Linux
and Windows setups. 

I think vendors should put some sensible defaults in place, e.g. no
SLAAC, no privacy extensions, no temporary addresses on severs.
