That brings a question to mind.  As an ISP, with IPv4, end sites that
are multihoming can justify a /24 from us (or another upstream) and
announce it through multiple providers.  With IPv6, are they supposed to
get their block from ARIN directly if they are multihoming?  In other
words, should I _never_ allow customers to announce smaller blocks of my
IPv6 ARIN block?

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
