You're not seriously suggesting that using a single /64 for loopbacks on
your entire backbone or that using /126's on core link point-to-point
connections is profligate wastage?
I'd agree that there is a whole pile of profligate wastage being promoted
in v6 assignment strategy right now - particularly in the area of /48's for
end-users - but scrimping on a small number of /64 is not a sensible
approach to dealing with address wastage.
