BCP: Slicing a /32 for an ISP

Quick to the point:

Has anyone done any documentation on how they decided to slice up their 
IPv6 allocation?

I'm pulling hairs deciding on a tactical solution for the long-term in 
regards to how I should 'cut up' my /32.

Can anyone here provide any feedback, positive or negative to the way 
they have done this?

What did you use for core infrastructure? What did you divide off for 
remote PoPs? Did you cut up your /32 into /35's and work from there? etc 

I can't find any decent documentation for what has worked for an ISP, 
and how 'they' did it, particular to a small ISP. (forgoing an argument 
about CPE assignment, I just want to know how people are assigning and 
delegating routing slots from the core to their edge).

Before I can make a concrete decision (because the size of the space 
still intimidates me), I've been simply using 'my:32::x/64' type 
addresses for testing within a single subnet.
