Is a /48 still the smallest thing you can route independently?

one of the downsides to v6 is the huge amnt of space the folks expect you to announce.
lots of space to do nefarious things.  that said. if you select your peers carefully and don't mind 
a bit of hand crafting, you can /96 and even /112 

that said, get a /32 and assign/announce /48s...
