In order for that to work, some network must announce the aggregate /32, 
and provide Internet service to all the smaller entities being numbered 
out of it.  That is essentially what an ISP/LIR does.  If you'd like to 
start such an ISP, you could easily qualify for an IPv6 /32 under 
existing policy for LIRs.
