RADIUS.

When your session comes up you get, in our trial (http://ipv6.internode.on.net) a /64 assigned to your PPP interface.
You can choose to send an RA and assigned your router an IP in this or not.

Otherwise your router sends a DHCPv6 PD request to our BRAS.  Our BRAS knows who you are and does a radius request.  Our RADIUS server sends back either a pool name or a static /60 (for the trial) which then gets routed to your interface.  You then assign internally as required.
