I have always had a static IPv4 address but no assigned IPv6 block, and my 
system has been using that kind of local network addressing system behind a 
firewall for ages. It does not enable reliable direct remote monitoring of CCTV 
and security systems installed by other family members. I used to run my own 
websites, with local routing through the firewall, now provided externally 
after problems arranging CA certificates. I had hoped that many problems could 
be solved by static IPv6 addressing.
Schools are now teaching IT and computing, and remote control systems are 
becoming popular, but not when the dynamic address could change at any time.
A current general lack of  education should not be a permanent block.
