So I have never thought of this as the CDN business is quite crazy anyway
given everyone is doing it these cloudy days.
But why do they actually need /48-PI rather than getting a /48 or smaller
assignment for their caches, which they often seem to put into ISP/Eyeball
networks for exactly the reason to have them close to eyeballs anyway?

Of course if they put themselves onto IXPs I can see the "own" address
block thing.

What's the common case out there?
