	Nope. Its still special. Once you turn on multicast support,
	you get to "diddle" in that space although not directly.

	See the nanog archives from late 1996/early 1997 for exaustive
	discussions on what were special use addresses and what became
	special use.  Look for "Martian" in the subject thread.
