I seriously hope that these PI /48s will be assigned from a large 
dedicated allocation, so it should be enough to allow /48s in those. 
Actually I can imagine that more operators will start filtering on /32 
boundaries for regular PA blocks now since the PI/BGP multihoming issues 
are sorted out.

Since I don't know the current state of affairs in ARIN land, do those 
end-sites have to be ARIN members themselves? Are there 
one-time/recurring fees?
