Hi John,

It has been discussed to death. Here's a summary of the results:

/48 to business customers by default: strong consensus
/48 to all customers by default: IETF likes. Owen likes. Healthy mix of others.
/56 to residential customers by default: I like. Healthy mix of others.
Never less than a /60 to any external customer (not /128, not /64):
strong consensus
Always on a nibble boundary (mask divisible by 4): strong consensus
