IPv6 would eliminate the need to make a network design which
shares IP addresses from a flat addressing structure. It is
probably too late for anyone to fix an IPv4 network design
which uses addresses inefficiently.

Better to deploy IPv6 where addressing efficiency is not an
issue at all and it is expected that every device will have
multiple IPv6 addresses.
