It's a fantasy world where every thought has its own subnet.

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.
