The largest 6rd deployment today provides a /60 its residential
subscribers. Thus, 6rd uses a /28 (in this case from within a /26 for
the whole ISP).

This is the first example listed here:

http://lists.arin.net/pipermail/arin-ppml/2010-September/018175.html

I have seen only one ISP go as short as /56 with 6rd. In this case, the
provider happened to have sufficient allocation to do so long before 6rd
was even invented.

The most common alternative besides /60 I see is a single /64 in order
to operate within a /32 minimum allocation. This of course denies
routing in the home (leading to IPv6 NAT) and not something I think we
want to see more of.

Of these three (/24, /28, or /32), /28 would seem the best balance.

> Indeed, as written a small ISP with a pair of /20 IPv4 allocations could request a /15 of IPv6 addresses for the purpose of hanging a /48 off each of their IPv4 address using 32-bit mapped 6rd in one /16 with a second /16 left over for native IPv6. No language in the resulting ARIN policy would suggest that such an enormous request is in any respect improper. Indeed, the policy would fail to support ARIN staff attempting to deny such a request.
