"but that's not what the industry want, I guess, especially since they see a delicious opportunity to track each single device on the internet."

I hadn't thought of that aspect.

If I ever shift my LAN to IPv6 (I don't know why I would, but just for the sake of argument), my LAN would still go through a router doing NAT, specifically so that my entire LAN only presents a single IP address to the rest of the world.

The less the world can tell about my network configuration, the better.
