CIDR allocation question

	Given a site that has a need for a certain number of
addresses, but probably will never need additional networks to fill
out a power of two allocation. Should we allocate the larger block to
the site anyway to reduce the size of the routing table, or should we
allocate two CIDR blocks?

	For example, if a site will only realisticly need 6 class C's,
should we allocate a block of 8, or a block of four and a block of two.
