It gets interesting if every mobile device should get a /48 as well, then
we're going to be spending a /14 on this (2^34 is 16G, 48-34=14.
Question, with growth and room for efficient routing, I'd imagine people
will need to start talking to their RIR to get larger subnets. Will the
RIRs accept these calculations and approve these sizes?
