   If I'm not mistaken the current IPv6 policy allows a LIR to give a /48 
to each end site. If a owner of a McD franchise (or whatever) asked a LIR 
for IPv6 space, a LIR may likely just give that endsite a /48.  So, I 
don't undestand why you think the entire McD business could not justify a 
need for more then a /47.
