I'm not sure of your operational background, so I apologise in  
advance if I am teaching you to suck eggs, but ..

If this is something that you have a strong opinion about, then it is  
probably worth voicing your opinion on the local (European/RIPE)  
address-wg mailing list - it's almost a year now since the case was  
refined and restated for v6 PI assignments :


There is a desire to keep the v6 default-free routing table small.   
Breaking up PA into chunks to allow multihoming does not allow for this.

This was debated on a number of operational lists that I am on, the  
consensus was that the material would find its way onto v4 p2p sites,  
because we don't collectively have a strong enough opposition to  
piracy !
