You still think of giving out EVERY ip address - This will never happen
and this hasnt happened to IPV4 - You loose a lot of ip address
when you need a lot locations, subnets etc - I think with a big
isp (As i am working for) looses 40-50% of its ip address to
just get routing, inter router networks etc to run ...

Not IPv6 makes this worse - The Bandwidth demand in the next
Decades will make this Happen. We have to assign IP Address more
in respect to routing topology than we do know. 

If MAE-East now doesnt accept announcements < /22 we will go up
to /8 or something within short timerange.

This is what history should have learned us - Dont underestimate

it very quick ...
