3ffe:0:1::/48 belongs to someone else (you picked it up at random,
right?), so you will need to remove these address before you connect
to the global 6bone. so in your case, you cannot avoid renumbering.
if you had a valid IPv6 prefix with you, and you get another
connectivity, you can assign addresses from both prefixes to your
machines. so your machine will have:
unlike IPv4, you can have multiple IP addresses onto your interfaces.
