Simply call it "IPv6 enabled terminals reachable through
IPv6", then I am fine with it. "Native" may mean different
things to different people, and what does the terminal
care as long as it can send/receive IPv6 packets?

I haven't followed the renumbering discussions all that
closely, but do you consider the assignment of IPv6
addresses/prefixes where there were none previously as
a "renumbering event"?
