Re: Civilian note
You've clearly never tried to run an SMTP service on IPv6 and assume all end users have some IPv6 capability.

... build our own (pi/opencv) open source facial recognition database from cameras pointed at parliament and police HQs.
Then when any police chief or politician opens their mouths; we present them with their movement history, attendance, known associates, and related vehicle registrations.
I'm sure it would be very interesting data, in the public interest, full of wonderful inaccuracies we can present as facts... would be legislated against in a heartbeat.
The IHD on your LAN may not be supportable but the CU meter is still able to communicate with the WAN (be it custom collect net or having moved to DCC or not yet). The IHD is only to provide a perceived value of smart metering for the consumer, it has no value to the supplier to maintain.
My elec/gas supplier OVO don't use DCC/Crapita yet but will, so have agreed to limit WAN data collection to monthly summary while I retain near real-time consumption data over LAN to the IHD.
My water supplier Yorkshire Water have and intend to maintain their own WAN collection network and only monitors usage with frequency appropriate for billing.
In both instances they were adamant the smart meters could not be removed once installed, but ultimately agreed they could not prevent the legal installation of Faraday cages, then they were willing to escalate enquiries, provide detail on how they use and compromise.
