It allows "zero touch" moving of a customer from one PoP to another.

Portable long prefix makes geoip more challenging (e.g. /29s in a
single /24 used in different markets)
I am curious for static IP services, how often does the address come
from a local (PoP/metro) pool, and what the policy is for keeping the
same IP when service address moves.
