If the world wants ULA to become the de facto GUA, no amount of arm 
twisting and bulling will stop it.

There are many cases where ULA is a perfect fit, and to work around it 
seems silly and reduces the full capabilities of IPv6. I fully expect to 
see protocols and networks within homes which will take full advantage 
of ULA. I also expect to see hosts which don't talk to the public 
internet directly and never need a GUA.
