That makes sense. I do recall now reading about having that 8 bit separation between tiers of networks. However, in an IX everyone is supposed to be able to talk to everyone else. Traditionally (AFAIK), it's all been on the same subnet. At least the ones I've been involved with have been single subnets, but that's v4 too.

You probably want a /56 for each so you can hand a /64 to each customner.
That way, customer isolation becomes easy because it's a routing problem.
If customers share a subnet, it gets a little harder....
