I concur (with the request a /48, get a /64, not a /60).  At least
that is how I recall it used to work (I have not tried for some time
at this point, and while I know Comcast has changed things
in the interim, I am pretty sure I do not want to wait for Comcast
to time out a /64 if that is what I end up getting).  If someone
has better information, I am willing to consider a test.
