so renumbering out of a /56 into a /48 is harder than renumbering
out of a /124 into a /112 how? renumbering - regardless of version
is hard... primarly becuase application developers insist that
the IP address is the nodes persistant identifier, not where it is
in the routing topology. renumbering hosts is a breese in either
version of predominate IP protocol, DHCP is your friend. Or if you
want less robust functionality and semantic overload, you can use
the RA/ND stuff in IPv6. - regardless, renumbering from one address
range to another is painful - CIDR -might- be helpful, but artifical
constraints e.g /64 only serve to confuse.
