I don't think I was advocating a /48 for each handset.  What entity on
the mobile network does the address allocation?  That component could be
assigned the /48 and then in turn the handset is assigned a) /128 from a
/64 segment on the assigning device b) /64 subnet from the /48 block or
c) multiple /64's from the /48 block from the assigning device.
