So we argue for a /48 for each home user site but we toss out that
argument when it comes to a smaller business with multiple sites?

I applaud the intent but think it is too short sighted William. It
should take no more routing slots for an aggregated /40 or /44 than
for a /48 and the /40 or /44 are in line with the v6 paradigm that has
been fronted on this list and others.
