4) Use mild filters (e.g. allow a /32 to be disaggregated to /36's)
and send a polite email to the POC to the effect of, "Please beware
that because you have not offered a covering route matching your
allocation, your IPv6 network is not reachable from ours. IPv6 is not
IPv4: end users requiring /48s for multihoming should get them
directly from the RIR. For complete Internet connectivity, we strongly
encourage you to offer a covering route."
