That's not what I said. If /48 are accepted by * then people with
a /32 or whatever will deagg to /48.

How much and why they deagg will vary but *hand waving argument* it'll
be a lot more pressure on routing table size than people doing PI

You get one shot at fixed prefix size filters, miss and you'll pay
forever. Which is more scarce, /32's or routing table entries.
