Privacy Extensions for Stateless Address Autoconfiguration in IPv6 in wheezy as default?


i currently wonder if Debian should implement RFC 4941 as default for

Background: IPv6 configured via router advertisement will use the
hardware address of the ethernet card to encode the IPv6 address. This
raises privacy issues, such as being able to track each single device.

I therefor wonder, if Debian should be shipped with the privacy
extensions for stateless address autoconfiguration on IPv6 per default
starting with wheezy.

I would like to hear other developers meanings to this issue, before
proposing this as release goal for wheezy.
