You might be right there, although I suspect that any shortage there
would be more a result of the allocation policy (e.g. supporting
renumbering) rather than not having enough address space.

It should also be remembered that only 1/8 of the IPv6 address space
is currently allocated for aggregatable unicast addresses. If the
current structure doesn't work out, it's possible to break out a
new 1/8 block from the reserve and try a new strategy.
