SLAAC only works with /64 - yes - but only if it runs on Ethernet-like
Interface ID's of 64bit length (RFC2464).
SLAAC could work ok with /65 on non-Ethernet media, like a
point-to-point link whose Interface ID's length be negotiated during the
Other non-64 Interface IDs could be constructed for 802.15.4 links, for
example a 16bit MAC address could be converted into a 32bit Interface
ID. SLAAC would thus use a /96 prefix in the RA and a 32bit IID.
IP-over-USB misses an Interface ID altogether, so one is free to define
