Me too. There are some thing that we need to discuss and some things to 
iron out exact details on, but the document is extremely useful and I 
would like to see it adopted as WG document.

Personally I would like to see (at least) /64 given to each device that it 
can use locally. Having lots of addresses on the same subnet means 
(usually) multicast traffic increases, so the best solution would be to 
just PD /64 (or larger) to each device and let it figure it out.

IPv6 for me is 2^64 networks, not 2^128 addresses, and I would prefer if 
each device got its own /64 for substantial number of deployment 
scenarios, especially when devices are run by different entities which 
includes the ISP (regardless if it's campus network or some other Internet 
service provider).
