Thus why didn't you request a larger prefix from ARIN then?
Clearly you can justify it.

Then again, if you are going to provide /56's to home users, nobody will
think you are a bad person and most people will be quite happy already.

In your case I would then reserve (probably topdown) /48's, for the
larger sites/businesses and start allocating bottom-up for /56's to

I haven't requested anything yet.  That's why I came to you folks.  To learn and then get busy on it.  Thanks for your top-down and bottom-up idea.  I will probably also intersperse /56s in between allocations as well; filling them in later if it ever gets to that.
