In the case of WiMAX or HSPDA this could be any of the next generation (out

Well, I don't like the idea of end users connecting IPv6 only hosts
directly to the ISP network, I want the customer to be required to have a
router, and I don't want the customer to have the possibility to source
packets in core IP space, and I don't want ISP routers to have IPs in the
customer IP range.
Personally, I want IPv6 native service to require the customer to have a
CPE router, if they don't want that, then they can get IPv6 tunneled over
6to4, PPPoE, L2TP or alike, terminated at their computer.
