For purely address space allocation it probably is superfluous, for
simple network zoning maybe not.

Yes, that is true - I did think about that earlier, but decided it
wasn't a real issue, more a matter of being comfortable. I.e. "am I
comfortable that my workstation has a public IPv6 address?". I
probably haven't thought it all through, but my immediate conclusion
was that it's not a problem as the firewall will still be there to
protect me.
