These were my suggestions using feedback from the last meeting:

To qualify for a minimum end site assignment of /44 you must either:

   - have an allocation or assignment directly from ARIN (and not a
     legacy allocation or assignment)


   - meet the qualifications for an IPv4 assignment from ARIN without
     actually requesting one.


   - be currently connected to two or more IPv6 providers with at least
   one /48 assigned to you by an upstream visible in whois/rwhois.

Assignment prefixes shorter than the minimum would be based
on some metric and definition of "sites".

One practical way to look at sites is by number of connections to 
separate upstream provider POPs.

| Connections | Assignment |
|         <12 |     /44    |
|       <=192 |     /40    |
|      <=3072 |     /36    |
|       >3072 |     /32    |
(C=0.75 * 2^(48-A))

Or if /56 becomes the new default PA assignment shift the assignment 
sizes right 4 bits.

As far as I know it hasn't changed since the last meeting.  Obviously
it should be updated one way or another.  I would gladly write up a
formal revision or new proposal if requested.
