Are we really proposing that a leaf organization get a /48 per location?

I think the rest of the proposal is a step in the right direction, but I 
have a hard time rationalizing more than a /48 per single leaf org unless 
they justify the need for more subnets.

Think about it: McDonalds would qualify for a /31 (or so) under this 
proposal, as much or more than most ISPs.  They'd be able to assign a /64 to 
_every hamburger they sell_, not just the stores.  While I'm sure that would 
be entertaining, is this a reasonable policy direction?
