[arin-ppml] Automatic IPv6 Eligibility

Maybe off-topic, but the recommendation for assigning a /48 to each of
the ISP's customers...  Does that apply only to business customers 
and organizations, etc., or does it also apply to residential customers?
Why would a residence (unless they're network hackers like most of us)
ever need more than a /64, let alone 2^16 /64's?  I don't see any obvious 
use case for people subnetting their house or appartment :-)

I'm sure this has been discussed to death here and elsewhere.  I've not
yet been involved in any large-scale IPv6 deployments (just our lone LAN
that easily fits in a IPv4 /24, and doesn't yet have any off-site IPv6
connectivity), so I'm trying to internalize IPv6 best practices before
screwing up too badly.
