If you still want fairly static addressing for your local network, there 
is always ULA.

And those addresses do not leak to the outside world.

I'm surprised no one mentioned it, maybe I missed it.

I can understand if people don't recommend them because you mentioned 
end-user, but it might be useful to a poweruser.

You could have your DSL- or cable-router/-modem onetime generate a ULA 
and have RA/DHCPv6 distribute that to the devices in the network like 
the addresses it gets from the provider.
