dynamic or static IPv6 prefixes to residential customers

Agree with all your points.

Also, one can argue that a dynamic prefix facilitates privacy ?

However, if ISPs or third party companies (and thus users ask for more and
more bw) want to offer new services and apps with IPv6, it will be much
easier to implement with static prefixes.
