A few were saying they thought about going down to as small as a /27. This was mainly due to more networks coming online and not having even a /24 of IPv4 space. The first argument is against this is the potential bloat the global routing table could have. Many folks have worked hard for years to summarize and such. others were saying they would do a /26 or bigger.
