If the customer now wants more than one subnet, the ISP must now route additional prefixes to a customer's gateway.  The customer can't just setup a router to break up the single /64 without the ISP carrying a route entry or the customer doing some kind of IPv6 NAT or proxy ND.  If the ISP wont route additional prefixes, then the customer is forced to do the latter.

If you need more than one prefix, then, they should route you a /48
instead of a /64. If they won't, I strongly encourage you to switch
providers, or, get a free tunnel from http://tunnelbroker.net and
use that.
