I assume you mean v4 in your second reference in the above paragraph?
I don't think the argument is about PI block size.  Rather, it is about
making PI space available to end-sites...Only once that hurdle is crossed,
can a discussion of PI block size be entertained and given that the current
size for PA to end-sites starts at a base of /48 and gets larger with
justification, there may be no issue.
