Unfortunately, I don't see support for it in major router vendors for 
service providers. Currently, flow + arp/ND/routing tables are utilized 
to determine a variety of situations, but even then, flow collection is 
limited at higher speeds.

I considered a 1 in 200 approach, but the iBGP tables will go through 
the roof for a single DHCPv6 pool in a single pop. I a worse problem 
with darknets than those scanning have with scanning a /64, especially 
since their scans are likely to be more targeted and not as random.
