I think the correct answer there is to tell the CPE user/owner to 
return the unit as not fit for purpose - and failing that, "find a 
large axe to reprogram it with".

After many decades we seem to have got most CPE manufacturers sorted 
out with the basics of IPv4, I think all the same problem are going 
to happen with IPv6 :-/
