While I understand the position you put forward, if addresses are not 
obtained from providers, then the address prefix will need to appear in 
all default-free routers through which connectivity is desired.  It is, 
of course, true that at this point in time there is plenty of space in 
the "global routing tables", the question is, will that last for the 
lifetime of IPv6?

Many people feel it would be wise to learn from previous mistakes.
