...the necessary evil called CIDR.  evil because it locked customers
into their providers, entrenched the existing large providers
against future providers, and made it hard or impossible for the
average endusing company to multihome.
Uh, perhaps I'm being dense, but how does moving masking off byte
boundaries have any of the above effects?


CIDR also changed allocation policies and created the notions of PA and PI space.
