Indeed. I would still maintain that a medium size enterprise/organisation should be able to acquire and use IPv6 PI.  But it's perhaps easier to apply the "IPv4 way of thinking" to the problem, which may lead them into NPTv6. Personally, I would rather take the (relatively small) financial cost of PI than the architectural cost of NPTv6. But each to their own, I guess.
