Cable and Wireless just made a presentation at Nanog about their IPv6
deployment. You can find it at:
Slide 6, entitled "Addressing" has some interesting facts about how
they have chosen to deploy IPv6, which includes use of their /21
(11 bits larger than the default /32 allocation).
While I think all the numbers are interesting to talk about, two points
are particularly interesting with respect to my original post on this
thread. I quote:
"All links, regardless of interface type, do get /64 assigned to
simplify operations, IP admin, DNS and management."
"No stateless autoconfig anywhere."
So, they are assigning /64's everywhere, yet explicitly not using
the one feature the fixed subnet size (currently) enables. So, for
something that in IPv4 we can number with a single bit (using a /31
on a point to point link), they are using 64 bits to do the same
