Give me a real example.

Current IPv4 policy encourages people to use RFC1918 addresses, 
and prevents those people from easily getting more useful unconnected

Your proposal does not seem to make it any easier for an enterprise to
get a unique, unconnected /48, and therefore is preventing adopting of IPv6.
(Sorry, ULA is no better than RFC1918, which means that there is no
business case for moving to IPv6)
