Well, rest assurend that you have plenty of people disagreeing with you.

The again your views are shared by a lot of people for IPv4 as well, thus 
meaning it took until now before the IETF even hade a SAVI like working 
group to handle the security issues that has been around since forever but 
that was solved for IPv4 outside of IETF around 10 years ago but stil has 
no widespread implementation for IPv6 (but it's getting there).
