As we do not have clarity on who the ISP will be, and this will change frequently till v6 availability stabilises, use of ULA is common. A NAT66 device is used much a normal IPv4 NAT gateway; the NAT66 means that if the upstream IPv6 prefix address changes, all the PCs do ot end up with new addresses. Technically, I think you mean NPTv6, as per RFC 6296. It’s disappointing but not unexpected that sites are doing this. The homenet approach is that hosts are multi-addressed with ULA and globals. They use ULAs internally, which provides a decent level of renumbering protection, and globals externally. Having a single IP address is IPv4 thinking.
