I'm not trying to subnet anything, I just want the m0n0wall box to pass
the traffic through.

That's all I'm trying to do.  IIRC, I've done something similar years ago
using a Freenet6 tunnel on a Gentoo Linux router.

Here's exact info I got from my ISP:

Assigned LAN Netblock: 2001:4870:6003:0002::/64
Default Gateway for LAN Netblock: 2001:4870:6003:0002::1

Is the above possible with m0n0wall?  I don't think I'm completely off
base in thinking this is a perfectly acceptable setup, but if not I would
really appreciate letting me know where I'm wrong.

This forum post seems to indicate it is possible:
