Why not? It is CORE idea of IPcv6 addres space (no matter whart is written
abouyt allocation policies).
And I can bet, we will see how every business can get PI space when required
(in ipv6) for multi home,
in less than 3 - 4 years.

Except if IPv6 will be replaced by something simpler and more reliable like
IPv8 (but it looks very unlikely now).
