What I do is I use stateless autoconfiguration, and then take that
address and put it in DNS—all of my IPv6 accessible systems use that
What I have yet to do is come up with a method of generating all of my
DNS configuration such that I can provide an IPv6 prefix and have the
records themselves generated automatically. I might actually opt not
to do that and instead use a setup where my hosts just use DDNS to
update the DNS server.
