I recommend they be kept as separate from other assignments/allocations
including micro-assignments as possible.  Future advances in routing
architecture may allow many more of these being assigned than what is 
imaginable today.  Might as well just put them in a tiny part of a /16
by themselves until you need to use the rest of the /16.   Start
with a /32 reserved for this and populate sparsely like we appear
to do for micro-assignments.
