So, I'm at fault because my OS can only put a single /128 per jail()/prision and make a decision based on that?  Sadly it's not as easy to OS shop as you might want to suggest.  I suggest contributing code if you wish to change that model, but suggesting that people should not deploy something because they aren't using it the way you prescribe it to be is a different issue.
