At the end of the day, do what you feel is good for your 
network, provided you don't veer too far away from common 
network practice.

We use /126's for point-to-point links, /112's for LAN's, 
/48 for large customer assignment and /56's for small/medium 
customer assignments.

Other networks do other things. 

The one thing to remember is if you want SLAAC, you need to 
run a /64 on that LAN.

The RFC's are great, but they don't always reflect 
operatioinal realities. So ingest them but be mindful of 
common sense too. In the end, the RFC's will rewrite 
themselves to catch up with the day.
