Yup. Always wondered the same. Personally I would have thought that
a /96 initial allocation for v6 would have been a reasonable starting
point. Hell, it's worked wonders for the entire Internet for the past
I hope we don't see v6 allocations going the way of rfc1918 space.
Every man and his dog has an incredibly inefficient use of 10/8 just
because it's so damn big it doesn't matter. How will that attitude be
better when someone gets handed /56 ?
