I think that when we consider SWIP boundaries, we should take into account
strictly technical considerations, and not arbitrary ones. I think the
argument for requiring a /48 or larger to be SWIPed is well-grounded in
network engineering practices. I'm not sure I understand the technical
argument for anything smaller than a /48 being mandatory.
