Well, for subnetting, obviously, but I don't remember seeing a document that
said how to do that subnetting in an unmanaged network.

Precisely. And there will also be interesting problems when people try to do
link-local multicast discovery. There has to be a reason why 802.11 is pretty
much designed to be bridged with 802.3.
If CPEs needs to be not only PD "clients" but also PD "servers", and if they
need some basic form of in-site multicast routing/bridging, this may need to
be specified. Even if we mandate /56, without standard way to use more
than /64, people will resort to bridging and... address translation.

Right. Then I'm afraid 64rd is a non-starter in its /64 form.
