I agree.  Prefix length is an accident of allocation or sub-allocation
policy, which may be very localized.  Specific prefixes will be
identifiable as PA or PI only based on their block...I don't see any
utility in even trying to differentiate prefixes based on length.

I'd much prefer if we focus on making allocations of correct size for
the need, rather than trying to be clever where it isn't necessary or
won't work.
