If RFC 4193 does not provide sufficient uniqueness for your needs, you
should be able to get a /48 from ARIN under NRPM 6.5.8, passed several
years ago.  There is no requirement for connectedness per NRPM 4.3.5.

If the org doesn't qualify for a /48 per NRPM 4.3.2 (as required by, I have a serious problem with letting them call themselves
an ISP/LIR and getting 65,536 times the address space.
