We'll wait and see how ISPs handle IPv6 when the time comes. There's no reason to believe it won't make matters worse.

Except the time has come, and the devices do have public IP's (router has a DHCPv6 /64 address, and doles out addresses in the same /64 range to devices behind it using SLAAC; this is Rogers in Canada)

"If it's connected to the internet directly" So, an infinitesimal fraction of them, since almost all would be behind a NAT router.

IPv6 to the rescue! No NAT and even popular routers out there pass IPv6 without an SPI. (TP-Link Archer C7 would be one).
Speaking of, recommendations for a good router, anyone?
