Just stop. This nonsense about spoofing is easier because the IPv6
address space is bigger is bogus and wasting everyone's time. When each
customer is assigned a unique /48-/64 they are traceable to the
accountable entity no matter what low order bits they use. If they are
assigned something longer than a /64, they are likely to keep using
tunneling technologies like 6to4 until they can dump the provider that
is cluelessly hoarding a resource that is not scarce.
