I expect this to change little in the enterprise space. I 
think use of ULA and NAT66 will be one of the things 
enterprises will push for, because how can a printer have a 
public IPv6 address that is reachable directly from the 
Internet, despite the fact that there is a properly 
configured firewall at the perimetre offering half-decent 
protection?
