MMV.  In my experience, people don't get blocks, devices get 
addresses.  Some of those devices may be routers, which may 
have blocks of addresses for the devices attached to them.
So the question of how big a block is appropriate for the
room is moot--the right question is how many addresses are
required for a routed segment, based on the number of 
devices connected there.
