+1 to what Owen said or to put it another way...

This draft suggests both conservation and aggregation are conflicting goals
that need the appropriate balance.  The appropriate balance is not defined
here but a little guidance is given, and it is expected that current (and
ARIN policy will consider this and attempt to strike
the appropriate balance.

It provides advice that specifics of the protocol such as the size address
space, or availability will influence where the proper balance is.
"...because the IPv6 number space is orders of magnitude larger than the
number space, the scale tips away from efficient utilization towards
aggregation for IPv6 number resources."

The community has already decided that End Sites should get a minimum of an
IPv6 /48 as a direct allocation from ARIN, if they have a justified need
for PI space.

In other words a single IPv6 host, connected to a single IPv6 router with a
globally unique ASN and multi-homed to two providers is considered
sufficient justification of need for a PI IPv6 block, and thus  qualifies
the organization for a /48.

For ISP assignments to end-site /64 up to a /48 is supported, and /48 is
encouraged, and can be done with no utilization penalty.

I don't see a conflict here.
