you can. there was a bit of a war in the ietf some years back, and yhe
64 bit boundary is a convention. hardware must route and forward on 128
do other than 64 and you do not get auto-conf. some do not consider
this a loss, others do.

i wonder what strange gear you tried. all routers, cisco and other, i
play with operate on 128 bits.
