Ack!  ip unn wrecks havoc with net managers, causing all kinds of grief ;)

Seriously, I'd agree that internals should use the reserved space.  With
the poliferation of thousands of frame-relay PVC's (T-3 frame-relay is
here, folks!), and the penchant of using point-to-point rather than
multipoint interfaces, you'll end up dedicating lots of blocks just for
the serial lines.  Well, not lots and lots ... but we are at the
point of the NIC enforcing /27 assignments right now ...

Ahem ... just where is that condom I left lying around ... ;)
