If the ISP sees (and has to hand out) the PD, some bean counter will  
put a price tag on it ("differential pricing").
If there is a price tag on it, nobody will pay the higher price, and  
everybody will put in a kludge to get by with one /64.
Think about it: That's exactly the reason why we got mired in the  
InterNAT.

Really, /56 for everyone is the only way back to an Internet.
