Hi, 6MANners,

Today I formulated a brief personal email to some person(s) at the
regulator agency suggesting the allocation of shorter-than-64 prefixes
(e.g. /56) to end users.

I explained that the current situation where each of the mobile
operators deliver a /64 and not shorter to smartphones is not usable for
networks such as mobile hotspots or in-car multi-subnet networks.

I informed that there are some I-D proposals of Variable SLAAC that is
relatively refused at IETF because of the IETF necessity of 64bit (and
not shorter) IIDs.

Alex
