You mean, like these smart folks...

inet6num:       2003::/19
netname:        DE-TELEKOM-20050113
descr:          Deutsche Telekom AG
country:        DE

inet6num:       2a01:c000::/19
netname:        FR-TELECOM-20051230
descr:          France Telecom

For the record, a /19 is 536,870,912 /48 assignments. There's 64
million people in France, 83 million in Germany.  All of those
people could get 5 /48's FROM BOTH PROVIDERS (10 total) with that
much space.
