Not really.  We're trailing moore's law quite far behind, and the ratios
for total size:required prefixes for the ipv6 dfz look like the same sort
of scale as for ipv4.

Regarding the prefix leaks: le sigh.  Don't people ever learn not to accept
arbitrary crap from customers?  Prefix leaks require stupidity on two
parts, not just one.
