We do not have PI addresses for IPv6, to begin with. And the reason we
don't is that as soon as you begin to think about them I can already
hear screams about having to carry an individual /48 in the routing
table for each home.

Yes, we need a PI-like solution but is has nothing to do with site-local
addresses; they are complementary not competing.
