Be careful with IPv6, it raises a lot privacy concerns, as you can
assign IP numbers to even toilet brushes or almost everthing wihtout
running out of free IP numbers. This allows permanent assignment of
such IPv6 addresses to your computers, so every computer is in your
network is no longer "anonymized" by a single IPv4 address, instead
they have public IPv6 addresses all on their own.

This allows "permanent tagging" of your computer systems which is a
privacy problem.

You then need to rotate your IPv6 address on your own.
