I second that! I give out a proper configured /64 to every "customer"
regardless of he has one, two or more VMs in his network. The
alternatives did not work for us, furthermore scaling the networks is
reduced to drop in more VMs until the /64 runs out of addresses (read:
never) OR the situation calls for other setups anyway.

Receiving a /112 should make one at least thinking about the underlying
network design for a minute. It just looks awkward!
