It's update your IPv6 filters time:

IPv6 Assignment Blocks   CIDR Block
Expect blocks in between /40 and /48 there.
Filter recommendation document updated.
Could you also add blocks like 2800::/23 from LACNIC issued
Nov 2005 by IANA?

Does the policy really permit /40.../47 assignments?
The only thing I found so far is [1] which really only
defines the <=48 end. It's talking about _at least_ a /44
reserved for future growth and it says "When possible, [subsequent]
assignments will be made from an adjacent address block.".

Considering what we see with v4 PI (direct assignments) today
and had seen with /8 PA and an undefined ("open") other end in
ARIN policy I wouldn't trust any >=40 rule being the maximum
for this block.

I have so far decided to use (also see [2]):

! + ARIN PI (chose whatever one you think is worse)
!ipv6 prefix-list ipv6-ebgp-strict seq 135 deny 2620::/23 le 128
ipv6 prefix-list ipv6-ebgp-strict seq 135 permit 2620::/23 ge 32 le 48

Happy weekend.


	6.5.8. Direct assignments from ARIN to end-user organizations Initial assignment size Subsequent assignment size
