I wondered about that too. If every device has its own global IPv6 address, it should be easier for the cops argue some particular laptop was used for something naughty. The alleged criminal cannot so easily claim the IP address was actually used by someone else's device, like a neighbour or a "wardriver" who has managed to break in into his WLAN.
