Definitely necessary in the face of reverse delegation.

Anyways, in my opinion, v6 should be as classless as v4, so you can use
whatever you want on your network. My understanding, though, is, that
quite a few systems, foremost home router stuff, will not work well with
anything besides /48, /56 and /64. Some people will feel pain.
