SUMMARY of http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-terrell-math-ipaddr-ipv4-00.txt By distinguishing apparently identical IP addresses by using different subnet masks one can increase the number of IP addresses distinguishable by a 32-bit number to greater than 2^32.
yeah, then you'll need a minor adjustment to the routing table size when corporations and providers want to change networks or multihome.
Except for the problem that you need 32 extra bits to carry a mask or 5 extra bits to carry the masklen.
nice try, next topic please. -craig
