a data point: openwrt barrier breaker just shipped with ula generation enabled.

Another data point - I just deployed ipv6 source specific routing in
production. A box with an ipv6 address 5 hops deep in the network was
able to get out (through 4 routers without any ipv6 addresses, just
the fe80) Woot!

While the traceroute is weird, it's weirder with ulas. Each hop with
a ula generates a dns request which the local dns responder has no
idea what to do with,
and forwards upstream.

To me unless naming is solved thoroughly I'm really reluctant to
sprinkle ipv6 everywhere.
