I have a general concern here that this is why network equipment that comes with a default IP address will continue to live on in IPv4 land, and may never see IPv6 configuration as a result.  I’m sure someone will suggest using mDNS to go to https://myrouter.local/ or similar, but the complexity introduced by link-local here is unlikely to see significant changes as a result on either side, we are in a classic standoff situation.

I hate to say it but mDNS is likely the way to go for many things, but you may not be able to tell the difference between raspberrypi.local vs raspberrypi-2.local which can often be a challenge.
