Customers with many offices are certainly "grey area". We tend to view it that way: - if the offices are all interconnected internally, and there's one link from "the customer network" to us, it's *one* site (/48) - if each office has their own link into our network, and especially to different POPs (-> ISP aggregation comes into play), each office is considered a site on its own, and gets its own /48. With a /48, one might argue that this is wastive - maybe it is. If we go for /56s, this will ease up the argument "what is a site", as we can have so much more sites...
