CloudFlare IPv6 BGP announcements - WTF guys?

So, doing a "sh bgp ipv6 uni 2400:cb00::/32 long" reveals that CloudFlare are 
currently announcing a bunch of /48s to the rest of the internet through 
nLayer only - as far as I can see.

Simple suggestion: announce the /32 to the internet from all peering points 
like good Netizens and then announce your /48s from whatever peering it is you 
want the traffic sent to and tag it with the NO_EXPORT community attribute so 
you're not spamming up everyone's tables or hoisting yourselves by your own 
petard by getting filtered out.

Kind Regards,
