The current boundary is set at an organization which has ~500 hosts  
and could justify an IPv4 /22.

How much smaller would you like the boundary to be?

What is your size range, and, have you considered getting a /48 from a  
tunnel broker? (Feel free to reply to this one off list if you prefer) as an example. *
