IPv6 Routing table will be bloated?

Yes indeed, but you don't have to justify much if you only ask for the minimum, if you want more you need to ask...

Also, and this I like less, your membership is calculated from the number of IPs you have... I think in short $$=max(1180x1.3(log2(Addresses in /32)-8),Feev6 = 1180x1.3(log2(Addresses in /56)-22)

It would be nice as a start, but does not really take into consideration future expansion needs.

I would think that you could draw some parallels, though.

Something like:

v4 /16 ~ v6 /32
v4 /12 ~ v6 /28
v4 /8 ~ v6 /24

I know it we don't want to equate v4 and v6, but it may help as a guideline for the size of the customer base.
