Right. You the user *don't* care.
Users are almost never network admins. And the network admins presumably

Can't possibly work.
How is it any different than any *other* prefix becoming not appropriate

There's this big assumption on the part of the pro-site-local crew that

what we *need* to do is iron out the rough edges of IPv6 renumbering
so hosts don't care *what* they have, as long as they have *some*
