There is that chance yes especially from access networks which use RA.

As this thread has drifted off topic any way, would it for instance be  
a good idea to simply not accept mail from hosts that clearly use  
autoconfig ie reject all smtp from EUI-64 addresses. Of course not a  
wise idea for your own outbound relays which should handle mail from  
your customers but on the incoming side it might as well save a lot of  
headache and there is no need to keep track of which /64 are access  

Just a few cents,
