Is giving a /56 to residential customers REALLY "screwing them over"?

It may be a failure of imagination on my part, but I'm struggling to come
up with use cases for the home which would take up even 10% of the networks
available in a /56.  And if the vast, vast majority of home users will
never come close to needing the whole of a /56 then I don't see why every
home should be given a /48.
