I don't think it's just that the multi-prefix model is unfamiliar.
There's plenty of reason to believe that it won't work well. Static
address selection rules, no way for hosts to know which prefixes will
work better, inability of most existing transport protocols to fail
to alternate addresses.
One way to fix that would be multipath transport protocols. Rather than
try to guess what works best, just use all of them (or at least several)
and get better performance without having to make difficult choices.
