Why are you putting a router that you know needs to be reconfigured
onto a production network? This could backfire regardless of IPv6,
since you could have a similar issue if the router was performing DHCP
from a locally configured pool. If someone did this and complained to
me I would tell them they just learned a lesson and now know better
then to go connecting equipment with an existing configuration to a
production network without doing a full review first.
