And what if this "vulnerable" host is a Z-80 based PIC collecting
readings from 8 sensors and transmitting them through Ethernet
to a central data collection station? And yes, IPv6 has been
ported to Z-80 CPUs and the configuration that I describe is
actually in use today. 

The definition of a host becomes fuzzier and fuzzier as
time goes on. 

In making IPv6 addressing policy we must be aware that 
we are not making policy for the computers and networks
of 1995. Things are different today and will be moreso
in the coming years.
