Dear 6man!
My name is Radek Wrobel, I'm writing from Poland (I'm working in Wroclaw University of Technology, Division of Car Vehicles and Combustion Engines). With this idea I wrote to IANA and Leo Vegoda redirected me to you. 
Vehicle / mechanic engineers are working on a new On Board Diagnosis standard for vehicles ( Today EOBDv1 can diagnose (quasi online) 849 failures. One of most important advantage of EOBDv2 (but not only it) will be constant, real time communication with service. The best way of them will be indyvidual number for every car vehicles in the world. This number ought to cooporate with global networking - TCP/IP (IPv6). All cars have indyvidual number - VIN (17 characters which indicates on a country of production  and mark of the car: digits and letters A-X). Maybe there is time when someone must think about conversion VIN to IPv6 (like it's in local IPv4)? I've a few ideas about it and of course I can share them if you will be intersting in. 
Also we cooperate with VW and Toyota. I think they will be interesting about it too.
Best regards, Radek Wrobel.
