I thought I brought up this issue previously, but I'd like to see 
something addressing excessive use of addresses, maybe adding this as an 
additional paragraph in section 8, recommendations.

    Conversely, it is RECOMMENDED that hosts and applications not
    excessively consume IPv6 addresses, such as generating a new address
    for every connection or with excessive frequency, for instance every
    few minutes or seconds.  A general-purpose host utilizing several
    hundreds or thousands of IPv6 addresses seems excessive and
    unjustified in most situations. This could evoke network operators
    to deploy DHCPv6 simply to apply sanity limits on the number of
    IPv6 addresses available per host.
