I second that, I fail to see the harm in allowing any company that qualifies for a direct ipv6 be allocated a /40. There are many companies in the US that would never use up all 256 internal /48s, and there are some that would need more, or want to perhaps move the site mask to a /56, but with an automatic initial assignment of that size it would be easy to justify as a future proof allocation to the executive team. It also seems to me that entities larger than this are more likely to have multiple AS numbers and be using multiple routing slots anyway so multiple blocks might make more sense...

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.
