I have the goal.

I am not a political fan of ULAs, I would prefer a space of
Non-Connected Networks addressing, including perhaps Tony Hain's GeoIP.
(http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-hain-ipv6-geo-addr/ ), but I can
live with ULA.

Given ULA, the problem of connecting Jose and Jorge, is not a job for
DHCP or PD, but rather of a routing problem.  You can apply babel,
OLSLR, OSPC AHCP, etc. to the problem.

I see no reason to ever want NPT66.

Yup, it's true.
People under the age of 30 have never been on the Internet.  They grew
up with NAT, and assume that *their* computer is just a client.

It's gonna happen this time.
