anyone have exp with 6 digit closed dial plan

Hi we are doing a CM deployment in North Asia that must be provisioned to at least eventialy include South East Asia, Australia and South Asia and possibly the rest of the planet. I have been trying to work this in to a 5 digit closed numbering plan and it is bloody difficult (they might have around 5000 staff in Asia Pacific by the end of 2008). The only solution I have come with is to go with a 6 digit number plan instead, though I am reluctant as 6 digits seems exsessive for an extn. Does anyone else have experience with 6 digits ? Is/was it a problem for users is it worth doing ?

One recommandation is to use site codes, and keep 4 digit within a site, and use for example 3 digit site codes or whatever makes sense based on number of sites. This week people won't get frustratd with dialing a lot of digits when calling someone within the same building.
