I strongly support.

  While a /32 at first glance looked like way more addresses than we needed,
when I started engineering the network into my locations it quickly
became clear that /48 was out for all but my largest business
customers. /56 or /60's are all I could manage for SOHO and residential 
and still have a reasonably manageable network.

>>    8. Rationale:
>> The current ISP policy for IPv6 allocations is both short-sighted and
>> insufficient for rational deployments by most ISPs. We have gained
>> significant operational experience with IPv6 in the time since it was
>> written and it is clear that current policy is driving many ISPs to
>> choices of excess conservatism that will eventually harm innovation in
>> the consumer space.
