Not sure about that one. It basically creates another "class" of
resource holder (and why wouldn't everyone just go for that class of
space anyway?). Probably doesn't scale if you end up creating a policy
for every way a network may need to be designed.
As Patrick mentioned already, sheer traffic volume might end up forcing
de-aggregation anyway if you can't build a backbone big enough to handle
all traffic for a /32, CDN or not.
