Maybe because by sheer coincidence 2**32 /32 is exactly the same as ipv4 
2**32 /32?

Maybe because by sheer coincidence 2**48 /48 is exactly the same as ipv4 
2**(32 network bits + 16 tcp/udp port bits = 48)?

Maybe because 2**32 /32's is less than the current world population?

One thing is for certain.

This assignment policy is NOT enough for every particle of sand on 
earth, which is what I thought we were getting.
