An argument I've been making right along.  Concern about what's happening
network-wise outside my edge router belongs to my edge router, *and no 
other device on my LAN* should be held hostage by problems there.

That's my best practice advice (to my clients, at least), and if IPv6
makes that impossible, well, then, things are gonna get messy, until someone
figures out a way around it, cause I'm sure I'm not the only person who 
views it that way...
