I agree with owen, mostly... except I think we should just push RIR's
to make GUA accessible to folks that need ipv6 adress space,
regardless of connectiivty to thegreater 'internet' (for some
definition of that thing).

ULA of all types causes headaches on hosts, routers, etc. There is no
reason to go down that road, just use GUA (Globally Unique Addresses).
