Honestly, I could live with it just those three lines.  However, I'm
willing to recognize at least the possibility there is a legitimate
community interest in having records for assignments that are shorter than
/48.

As for IPv4, I'd also be just fine with those three lines.  Again,
recognizing at least the possibility there is a legitimate community
interest in having records for assignments that are shorter than /24
