And to add to that, those of us that will welcome GUA IPv6 
addresses in the home now have to find CPE that has decent 
firewall infrastructure that won't impact performance.

Modern CPE do have some firewall features, but there is tons 
of emphasis on NAT and port forwarding.

I'd hate to see CPE vendors focusing on NAT66 instead of 
proper firewall services that can scale with traffic.
