Remember, this is just 6rd.  With 6rd, a /60 does sound quite generous indeed.

And it's a /60 for each IPv4 you have, e.g. if you have a static IP
allocation with AT&T U-verse, say, a /27, then you're effectively
getting a /55 (plus also an additional /60 for the DHCP address in a
shared subnet to which your /27 is routed to).

That said, I wholeheartedly agree with your comment otherwise.
