We've been trying to avoid that kind of bad practice here in Brazil,
through an effort to get ISPs to undertand you do NOT issue /64 to
clients in the various NANOG-like (locally called "GTER") encounters

It is an uphill battle.  Time for an informational RFC, perhaps?  It
does help to point people at a RFC, where all technical arguments are
fully written down and explained.
