Why do you say /64? The model is supposed to be that SOHO subscribers
get at least a /56.
This is when the user's machine(s) directly get RAs from the ISP. In
that case it has to be /64 or stateless autoconfig won't work. If they
want more than a /64 they'll need an IPv6 router and, presumably, DHCPv6
PD to request a prefix.
Yes. That's the model we should be defining as best practice.
