It has been my experience that when you give someone a huge address space
to play with (eg 10/8), they start doing things like using bits in the
address as flags for things. Suddenly you find yourself using a prefix
that should enough for a decent sized country in a half-rack.

It's only slightly harder to imagine a /48 being wasted like that.
