Additionally, I believe it may remove the need for for proposal
84. IPv6 Multiple Discrete Networks. What to those that
support that proposal think?
Honestly, I would prefer people deaggregate their /32 rather
then getting multiple /32s. It might be possible in some cases
to reaggregate the /32 in the future or in other network that
want/can manage there route table more than others. But it
wouldn't be very likely that you could ever aggregate separate
/32s once they were assigned.
So I believe we should eliminate the requirement, but honestly
I'd like something like the following to remain "If technically
possible an overall aggregate should be announced in addition
to any shorter routes". I'd still like the general expectation to
be that you announce an aggregate if you can.
Overall I support this proposal.
