A /64 is just one network.  Arguments have been made that a smart
phone "needs" multiple /64's just to run IPv6 much less a "site" or
building.  The current fight is between a /56 and a /48 for each
customer as internal networking in v6 is going to happen.  Much
discussion has been happening on both Nanog and IPv6-ops mailing
