I've got a /56 which I'm then delegating /60s from - so, for example, I've
got a laptop which I run things like Virtualbox and Docker on.  This laptop
has a /60 and it can hand out /64s for virtual networks.

I figure that with the larger allocations to homes or offices the question
isn't "how do I allocate all of these" but "how do I delegate chunks of
this in a hierarchical manner."
