What do you mean by static ?!?

You can send as many updates/deletes as you want and changes are visible
within seconds.

I think it is up to you to decide if you want to spend the time
registering information that will be worthwhile for only a week. The
advantages of registering such temporary data are probably not very
important from an operational perspective. However, I would advise to
register the /44 inet6num object with appropriate remarks: line so that
people at least can find out where the IPs come from when they show up on
the 6bone,
