Yes, I know this is the rule, but right now we only have one location,
so I got only a /48.

One thing that I missed in my first e-mail, was to say that for each
subnet I allocated a /64 as it works with most equipment and no funky
netmasks.

One of my ISPs is running /126 netmask on the border links and the
other runs /64 - probably a matter of preference by their network
admins.
