Your toaster would be able to make an outward call home through an IPv4 NAPT in the residential home gateway, so the corporate overlords will know about it either way.

IPv6 eliminates the need for the NAPT and allows for transparent end-to-end connectivity. That will allow applications that don't require centralised control.
