We do charge them for addresses already and cost doesn't come into
play.  We charge for assignments shorter than /28 to discourage IP

They have inquired about IPv6 already, but it's only gone so far as
that.  I would gladly give them a /64 and be done with it, but my
concern is that they are going to want several /64 subnets for the
same reason and I don't really *think* it's a legitimate reason.  Bear
in mind that "legitimate" in this context is referring to the
justification itself, not their business model.
