Not sure if that's so easy, and I'm not really sure is really needed. Do you have any idea ? We could also apply that "idea", may be, to the standard IPv6 allocation policy. It will be good to understand if the staff is having problems there, or it is just enough the way they are doing and it may be applied then here the same. > > Also, the proposed text does not define a maximum size for an IPv6 PI > assignment.

Not at all, it is not intended to assign a /32. However, if the case justify it, we aren't closing the door. I really think it is difficult to find a case that could justify that, in fact probably is very difficult to justify cases that justify something shorter than /44, but you never know how big can be a data center or content provider, for example. > > Regards, > > -- > Leo Vegoda > IANA Numbers Liaison > > ********************************************** The IPv6 Portal: http://www.ipv6tf.org Bye 6Bone.
