Hi Ben,

That case is covered by things like ARIN's multiple discrete networks
policy which permit an ISP /32 or end-user /48 for _each_ distinct
network. There are plenty of addresses in IPv6. You should be break up
a /32 for traffic engineering purposes, not for the sake of handling
multiple disconnected sites. And when exercising TE, you can offer a
covering route and expect the network as a whole to still function
regardless of other folks' suballocation filtering.
