Oh yes, another reason those devices won't be limited to the link-local addresses is that they will want to talk to the Internet.

for some strange reason, people think that a smart fridge needs to show you the local weather report, so it 'needs' to talk to the Internet.

your TV has an actual need to be able to find out what programs are airing and when they get rescheduled, so it will be talking to the Internet.

So these devices are not going to be limited to the local network.

Once we'll get serious about saving energy, the fridge will possibly want to know whether it needs to fill up its coldness reservoir in advance, because tomorrow will be a warm day and it won't be able to rely on cold outside air to help it cool its contents :-)
