Human factor. If renumbering could be done easily enough as was
for example envisioned with A6, then I think using provider ip
addresses would be seen as less of a problem. I suspect that
this would actually be sold with shim6, but not in the way shim6
designers want it but rather that shim6 addresses would be used
in a way similar to NAT as private ips on entire lan.
