FWIW, just to add to the picture - you might also look at
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-yourtchenko-humansafe-ipv6-00 - it's
a different approach, but has a running code with it (though I need to
fix a couple of bugs in it). As a free bonus to scan-resistance you
get a protection against corruption when using telnet-over-the-phone.
(and 8 ASCII chars for an arbitrary service name to store).

There's also running code in TCL for cisco IOS to do the same
transformation on-device.
