If the lower ones go a way then, as was said no one in their right mind 
would choose /36 or /40.  I can't imagine anything smaller, I just don't 
see room for more changes one the smaller side.  At least without 
changing the IPv6 architecture and the /64 subnet standard, and that 
would be a big enough change that a whole bunch of assumptions need to 
change not just this one.

Also, "/40 or smaller" for X-Small works well for end users, 93% are 
XX-Small, 5% are X-Small and 2% are Small.*
