That's not heresy at all.  As admin for an ISP with many residential customers, I can state that most residential end users be perfectly happy with a /124 if their few devices worked and routed when plugged in.  Heck, a great many customers would be perfectly happy with a /128 with a host route that routed their one device.

I realize that these examples would in reality cause problems, but it doesn't change the premise.
