I am happy to amend the proposal to be "may assign a /48 to every
site" (heck, make it a /32 for every site) if that's what the
community wants.  Incidently, this is the only way I can see ARIN
staff really standing on the current policy, since what is in the
NRPM is "here are guidelines".

Back to my original point, all I care is that ARIN staff have solid
guidelines.  Since we use HD Ratio everywhere else in IPv6 policy
I used that hammer and set the bar at .25.  I thought allowing a
site that needed only 16 subnets to have 65,536 was within IPv6's
spirit of "enough address to last forever".
