"2 times as big", if you believe that routers that need to care about 
table size won't do anything about what's past the /64 boundary.

It still costs money. Especially since you'll also need to be carrying 
the v4 table for approximately forever, and it'll be deaggregating 
faster and faster at least for a while.
