I'd also be interested to know what you'd *want* if you were asked how
you'd like to structure IPv6 addressing, if you didn't have any history
of having to be conservative with IPv4 addressing. IOW, imagine IPv4
didn't exist, and therefore your thinking about IPv6 isn't influenced
by your history with IPv4.

If I wasn't worried about routing table size (you said "if you didn't have any history...imagine IPv4
didn't exist") I wouldn't give household and SOHO networks billions of addresses.
