Just one more possibility of increasing privacy and security. Depending on who is the service provider, is up to the user to decide if they want to allow other service providers to access that information or not, and we should technically facilitate it, right ? If we start increasing the difficulties of making new things possible, we will end up repeating the IPv4 mistakes. The mistake here is limiting address space and subneting possibilities to be easily managed. >From both, the ISP and customer perspective, is much easier managing a flat network were everyone has /48 instead of having different "classes" of customers, because the goal is not to charge because you have or use /60 or /48, but because you use this or that bandwidth and/or this number of services, just like cable or satellite TV. You have a base service which doesn't limit you how many channels you have (technical limitations apart, of course), and you can in addition contract a set of services for your kids, sports, films, etc. But up-front, the base service doesn't limit what else you can buy !
