Disagree.saving the poor routing table is a laudable and worthwhile goal, but dumping the excess into the edges, "just cause its easy" strikes me as lame. a routing table slot is a slot is a slot. It holds a /96 as well as a /32 as well as a /112. If we are going to ditch "microassignments" (and boy is that term an oxymoron) then we should also dump "one-size-fits-all" and really and truely give folks what they need. RIRs have -never- assured the routablity of delegations.
The one saving grace I can see of v6 is that there is enough space to give everyone the space they need in a single allocation.
It's not a waste if it keeps people from needing a second block.
Maybe not everyone needs a /32, but let's not get stingy with plentiful resources (IP space in v6) and risk using too much of a not- so-plentiful resource (routing table slot).
