Never doubt the ability of certain Asian countries to burn through IP 
space at blistering speed when their citizens can't even directly access 
the internet without going through a massive firewall and proxy system.  :)

Those cases are probably best handled as a /16 delegation from a regional RIR
to a national RIR or similar. And they can just ULA themselves a /16 for inside
the country if they really feel the need ;)

And yes, I know a single /24 won't quite cover all of Comcast's customers if
they give them all a /48.  They're welcome to prove me wrong by turning up
enough customers on IPv6 to need a second /24. ;)
