I took 'experiment' as 'I put my things in a "lab" to see how they'd
work and work out bugs'

so renumbering, or a full deployment (with a numbering plan and such)
doesn't seem to be a problem there. I suspect a /32 is probably NOT
enough for most ISP-type folks anyway, so just assigning a random /32
isn't super helpful...
