It's good that this subject is attracting an I-D.

Perhaps we should first focus on "IPv6 address requirements for networks"
from which we could judge the relative merits and failings of solutions that
meet those requirements - address stability, surviving network disconnection,
renumbering on (re-)connection, etc... for different classes of networks.

Of course, a "Site Locals Considered Harmful" would also be useful (Keith, you 
know it makes sense, and less effort than 100 emails to the list :)

If such opinion can be documented we may save a few hundred emails when
Margaret puts out the call for list consensus (or maybe we won't...)
