Perhaps this will help focus the problem statement.

Cable broadband standards for IPv6 already cover multiple IPv6 addresses for hosts.  DSL broadband should also cover multiple IPv6 addresses.   Thus the gross networks one is left with is corporate (includes universities) wired and wireless and cellular.  For IOT and sensors one already has other documents covering their IPv6 behavior.   Additionally, do you want such sensors to also support more than one IPv6 global address?  

Sorry for the typo in my other email related to multiple prefixes in the RA.  It's when multiple prefixes are included in the RA, the host can assign a global address per prefix.
