Static or static-ish IPv6 prefix

Does anybody know if consumer (that is, non-business) customers can get a static ip6 prefix? If not, is it reasonable to assume that if my Juniper SRX300's DUID never changes, the prefix that gets assigned to it should not change either? If the CMTS gets replaced will it change?

Yes this would be true..  Unless there is a node-move or IP address block change your address should stay the same over a point in time..  Mine has been the same for over a year and before that for about 3 years..
