Yep.  My point, though, was that we can do the same kind of thing in
the datacenter.

In general, I think ND exhaustion is one of those "solve it at Layer
3" situations, since we have the bits to do so.

IPv6 gives us a large enough space to see new problems of scale, and
sometimes the large enough space can be used to solve these problems
too, albeit with non-IPv4 thinking.
