...for the duration of his ability to connect to that network, yes.

that's dependent on the network infrastructure, and business decisions made, on the network behind him.
the right answer is maybe.  the more appropriate answer is: "probably not"

hint:  because something is technically possible, doesn't mean it *should* be done...

again, that's dependent on the underlying network infrastructure.
in general, if you can do this now, with IPv4, you should be able to do the same with IPv6.
because it's possible to have *unique* addresses in IPv6, it's potentially easier to do this in IPv6, than in cases where you are currently NATting in IPv4.

that's not really an IPv6, or technical problem...  ;-)
