Just wondering if anyone could shed light on my concern.....

I've been Google-ing about if there is such a standard that sets the 
minimum IPv6 advertisement on BGP.  My concern is that I am running a 
network that is operating on multiple sites and currently rolling out 
our IPv6 on the perimeter level.  Having to get our /48 allocation from 
our RIR, I figured out I would it would be best for us to break down the 
/48 into smaller chunks (i.e /56s) and farm it out to our sites since a 
single /48 will be very big for our single site.

Any advise will be very much appreciated.
