Yes, you are of course correct. I was thinking about selective filtering 
information between ports, but that is stupid/way too complex and most 
hardware cannot do that in a good way.

I guess you still need proxy-ND or similar as described in RFC4389, and you 
don't accept clients with IP addresses not assigned over DHCPv6. Fair 
tradeoffs, SLAAC does not work with abuse etc.
