Bzzt. Thanks for playing. Please pick up a lovely parting gift on your
way out the door.
The IPv6 analogy to what I described is handing out a /128 to each
individual, which again, is not supportable.
A /32 of IPv6 space connects multiple users. A /32 of IPv4 space does
not. It's nice to note there are 2^32 of both, but the IPv6 network
sitll connects 2^96 more users than the IPv4 network. The only way your
statement could be true is if someone was advocating giving IPv4 /32's
to individual end users, which no one has done.
FUD, total FUD.
