Different how?

So with IPV6 we are replacing a single NAT IPV4 address, which multiple people could be using with an IPV6 address block, which multiple people could be using.

Either way, you can't know for certain which person did whatever it is you want to investigate. I would think that IPV6 would be slightly easier. You could probably trawl the logs on the devices using the suspect address range (warrant assumed) to find which device obtained which IPV6 address.
