I wouldn't disagree with a Charter mentioning we deal with 25m IPv6
subnets and with 30.000km IPv6 subnets, and here are the two practical
methods to put addresses on these nodes.

links ranging from personal area to sattellite and everything in between
  and the generic addressing model is the following...
