Indeed, that would present a problem to you if /48's were ignored.

If every end-site gets a globally routable address (of any size, who
cares if it is a /56, or /48 or /40 or /32), where do we aggregate?
Do we just stop aggregating?  Do we find ways to hold a very large
number of routes in hardware?

I really don't know..
