Does this apply on a machine or interface basis?

I'd think that the very common case of having an autoconfigured "external"
address (PPPoE, ADSL, SDSL, CableModem) and a manually configured internal
address (your IPv6 block, which you advertise to your provider via an IGP)
would be pretty common in the future. (No NAT required, of course)
