That would be in scope for RIR policy or an RFC.  Presently, I don't
think the guidance in either RIR policy or RFC's supports this though.

Arguably though, considering 3G (EV-DV, UMTS, MIMO) developments in
mobile, perhaps some GSM/CDMA/iDEN device might be considered as a
"home" gateway and thus would follow the /48 assignment guidance from
the IETF.  That distinction hasn't been fully vetted in the community as
far as I know.
