The choice isn't the one between renumbering from a /56 to a /48 vs  
a /48 to a /48, but from a /60 to a /48 vs a /56 to a /48. I think / 
60 -> /48 is a lot less painful. Once you move from a /60 to a /48  
(or skip the /60 because you know you're not a residential user in  
the first place) you won't have to renumber when you deploy more  
subnets; only when changing ISPs.
