I dunno... it seems to me it'd be pretty hard to configure
1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 toasters (or any combination you prefer
of other devices) within any reasonable definition of "lifetime."
Once you find a host on a /48 jump to the next one I guess. Or make
some guess on what IP addressing scheme is being followed and which
subnets of that /48 are being used [assuming that an end site like a
cellphone carrier decides to give v6 IPs to all its phone users] ...
scan from within the network.
I suppose if one were sufficiently motivated to develop some automated
tools for configuration, it'd be possible - but I suspect the power company
might notice the small power blip if I plugged in all those devices
(personal nuclear plant, anyone?)
Sure, with some incredible luck, you could find all those devices while
you're scanning - just seems like some are crying that the sky is falling
