[from the v6 ISP template]
14. Will you announce only the single, aggregated IPv6 prefix you
     are allocated by ARIN? Indicate YES or NO.
14. Specify YES or NO. If you receive an allocation from ARIN
     and you will only announce the least specific, aggregated
     prefix to your BGP neighbors, indicate YES. If you plan to
     announce more specifics of your allocation to your BGP
     neighbors, indicate NO.

I said yes when applying for our /32.  The instructions imply that no is a 
valid answer.
