Re: @Nanashi - "We have now run out of IPv4 addresses"

I guess I didn't. But I have now, and the general point still stands: v6 routes are going to be for prefixes 64 bits or shorter. The large address size also means you have more aggregation, and thus fewer routes to look through.That should make your job of spotting anomalies easier than a shorter address length (with its corresponding higher fragmentation) would've done.
