Not to worry, I thought about what to do if we run out of space. I will 
reserve my last /32 and sell sub allocations from that. Should that run 
out, I will reserve my last /64 out of my last /32 and sell /96 sub 
allocations from that. Just to be safe, I will also reserve the last /96 
out of my last /64, so I can sell /128 from that.

Every single network has enough address space to keep us going forever. 
It is not possible to "run out" of IPv6 address space like what happened 
to IPv4.

Can we keep using the liberal allocation policy forever? Maybe not. But 
then we can simply switch to a more restrictive policy. Someone (or 
everyone) has enough space to sub allocate using this more restrictive 
policy forever.

Does it make sense to switch to a more restrictive policy NOW? No why 
would we? Just so they can switch to the liberal policy sometime in the 
future? It is not so we can keep going with a restrictive policy 
forever, because that will always be an option, no matter what we do now.

Regards,

Baldur
