How do I tell my router that the ULAs on the home side of the router are 
different from ULAs on the cableco side?

If I knew I had an address range that held still, I would use DHCPv6 and see 
how many of my devices handle it.  What happens if I have ULA addresses handed 
out by DHCPv6 and global addresses from SLAAC?  Do I have to turn off SLAAC?

(If this stuff is all written down somewhere, I would be thrilled to get 
the reference.)
