As I currently ready 6.5.5.1 there are two classes of addresses that are
required to be SWIP'd
A. any re-allocation or re-assignment that is a /47 or less specific (/46,
/45, ...)
B. any sub-deligation that will be individually announced

I recall there being a third class, any re-allocation.

A re-allocation is when I ISP provides addresses to their down stream
ISP customer who then in turn will further sub-delegate address space
to their customer (who may also be an ISP with customers... and so on).

Can I suggest a friendly amendment of:


6.5.5.1. Re-allocation / reassignment information
Each static IPv6 re-allocation, reassignment containing a /47 or more
addresses, or subdelegation
of any size that will be individually announced, ...
