1) " ... you will need to replace the existing DNS and DHCP
systems... ": I am glad that you have touched the next level of
considerations. Operating an RAN with one 240/4 netblock, there will be
more than enough IP addresses to assign to all client premises. So, the
EzIP deployment will operate with static IP address disciplines,
negating the fundamental reasons to have DNS and DHCP. That is,
transition to running the electronic equivalent of telephony White and
Yellow Pages would be what EzIP deployment should rely upon.
2) " ... hear the relevant organizations saying that it changes their
networking model, ... similar to what has happened with the IPv6
deployment. ": Do they recognize that implementing EzIP address plan
on CG-NAT changes no network model? So, the perturbation is far less
than deploying IPv6.

Do so do, you will need to replace the existing DNS and DHCP systems with a PABX-like model - you need to find a way to let systems address each other. It also replaces firewalls with a model that prevents communication with devices that don't know the PABX port numbers.
