I use IPv6 over PPP here (great ISP).

The thing I don't understand is you want your router to act as an
auto-configured host WRT the PPP connection, and as a complete router
for the rest of the network.

Shouldn't the router use a static configuration? Or a routing protocol
to handle dynamic links?

I really think this is the point here. You seem to want to push the
auto-configuration to a very high level.

I don't think a setup where you have a mobile setup connecting randomly
to several ISPs concurrently is reasonable. If the network is mobile,
you'll have a default route to the link you're connected to, and if it
is only about having multiple links, then you have to go with a routing
