I didn't thought you were... sorry for the misunderstanding.
My comment was: i agree with you p.o.v. and what if a mobile operator 
is trying to assign a /48 to each handset? how does the rirs evaluate 
such request? is is acceptable and he will get the address space that 
he needs to assign a /48  to each handset? is this out of the scope of 
a policy?
