Since I mailed that, 3557 started receiving a covering /48 for A. Maybe
there's some operational/maintenance-induced stability issues for those
We've had reports before of F's covering /48 (2001:500::/48) being
filtered by some people, based on the conviction that /48s were always
bad and should never be accepted by anybody. It's possible that this is
biting Verisign, too.
For the record, ARIN assign critical-infrastructure /48s which it is
important to accept:
Gert Döring maintains an excellent summary of current good practice for
v6 filtering (including cisco and JUNOS configuration examples, and
filters of various degrees of strictness) here:
Operators who are currently blocking any prefix covered by 2001::/16
which is longer than 32 bits are encouraged to review that page, and
fix their routers.
