It was fixed 15 years ago, but not before more than half the space was 
"wasted". With IPv6 we can use current policy and only "waste" a /3 and 
then we can change policy and do something smarter if needed. This /3 will 
last us a long time and we have plenty of time to create something better 
than SLAAC.

It's time to deploy IPv6 *NOW* with what we have, not to start to change 
it in fundamental ways and delay deployment several more years by starting 
to change IPv6 stacks who are by now fairly mature.
