What makes that different from any other randomly selected block of
addresses if you don't apply some form of filter?

The current routing-architecture applied to v6 will blow up in our face
sooner or later without improved mechanisms to prevent excessive
de-aggregation and unauthorised use of unallocated blocks. I'm no fan of
private addressing, but it doesn't seem awfully hard to include the
handling of ULA-central in such a solution.
