I couldn't agree more.  We're spending so much time with new RFCs to handle all these prefix delegation ways in order to accommodate 'power users' who are used to chaining one NATing IPv4 router off of another one and having it sort of work.  If we'd just put a stake in the ground and say residences can have one router and bridge everything below that we'd be further ahead.  I just can't see 99.999% of users being interested in subnetting their homes and writing firewall rules so their light bulbs can't talking to their DVRs.
