Doesn't matter whether _you_ agree with it or not.  The point is that there
is a nontrivial although unspecified number of service providers who filter
along RIR allocation sizes.  Unless a supernet is advertised with
connectivity back to the each of the smaller subnets, connectivity to those
subnets will be arbitrarily spotty.

But - your network, your rules.  If you want your customers to have woeful
ipv6 connectivity, this is an excellent way of achieving it.
