Using IPv6 with prefixes shorter than a /64 on a LAN

A typical home user will have a /56 of GUA, or maybe a /48 with some
ISPs.  Anybody who knows enough to figure out how to set a ULA can
figure out a /64 from their GUA space that's not being auto-assigned
by one of their various home routers.  So if that's the way you want
to do things, it won't cost you or your ISP anything.

If your ISP is only assigning you a /64 of GUA, that's another story.

And Google probably logs and indexes everything you send it.
