Only required if those addresses are advertised to the Internet.
Which is apparently NOT
what people want to do with it.   In addition, it seems like the RIRs
frown on not publishing your IPv6 PI allocations.  If you go this
route, be sure to 'justify' as large an allocation as you could ever
possibly imagine using because you'll only get one bite from that
apple.

Or maybe someone could offer to advertise these deliberately
unreachable addresses for a small fee and then null route any stray
packets that happen to want to get
there.   Would this satisfy the letter (if not the spirit) for
justifying PI space?
