Dear Akamai, you got a /32 there not a bunch of /48s - how to break Facebook and annoy lots of users

It's called "IPv6 PI" and we have that.

(It doesn't matter for the amount of prefixes in the DFZ - but it does
make a difference if people filter out /48s from /32-range without
checking with their IRRDB whether they might want to make an exception
here - OTOH, if the /48s don't even *have* route6 objects, now that 
would be a good reason to bash Akamai)
