I believe this policy is changing. The new text is: "End Users are 
assigned an End Site assignment from their LIR or ISP. The size of the 
assignment is a local decision for the LIR or ISP to make, using a minimum 
value of a /64 (only one subnet is anticipated for the End Site)."

RIPE Policy Proposal 2005-08 was accepted in November.
