It is not a plan, it is justification. The 200-rule has been taken out
of the allocation already.

And based on the x customers times /48, they justified that they will
need a /20 or something else. As such when they are going to give out
/56's, they suddenly need 256 times as many customers and unless they
are going to grow insanely (for a /32 from ~60k to 15m customers) they
won't be able to justify their address space anymore.

As such, keep it simple folks, just pass out /48's.
