Feedback:

The Prefix Delegation Range Sets the start and end of the delegation pool. The range of IPv6 addresses specified here must be routed to this firewall by upstream routers. For example, to allocate /60 networks to downstream firewalls out of a given range, then one could specify 2001:db8:1111:F000:: to 2001:db8:1111:FF00:: with a Prefix Delegation Size of 60. This allocates a /60 (16 subnets of size /64) to each downstream firewall that requests a delegation so that they can in turn use those for their LAN, VPNs, DMZ, etc

This seems like an odd range to use for an example of a /60 delegation. It includes 241 of what should probably be 256 delegations there (excluding FF10 through FFF0). It seems like it would be more clear if the example was for /56 delegations (16 of them) or changed to F000 through FFF0 (256 /60 delegations.) Or something along those lines.
