Stephen - the possible space may have expanded greatly, but the growth
in number of devices/addresses actually in use that might be monitored
won't change greatly, at least for a while.
If you are concerned about the ability of ISPs to keep tabs on devices
actively using addresses, and track down those that might be (for
example) spamming or virus-ridden, this is typically done through
logfiles generated by active traffic, in which are recorded the actual
source addresses - the key scalability issue is the number of active
devices appearing in the logs, not the size of the address-space and the
numbers of unused addresses that might be surrounding those in use.
