So... Just out of curiosity, what would your suggested policy for this
class of users be?  I tend to think /64 and possibly a new /56 category,
but, certainly I would have trouble thinking that relegating anyone
who might match the SOHO category to being unable to qualify for multiple
subnets is a bad idea.  I think the gains of octet boundaries are worth
the tradeoffs (the dns hacks to handle VLSM IN-ADDR delegation really
are hacky).
