I see you've never done business with EDS.  They've been using 1/8 for  
over a decade.  Also, over the years, I've seen a number of universities  
and supercomputing facilities number nodes out of 1/8 -- however, those  
systems are never supposed to see the internet anyway, so they could  
technically number them however they want.  Personally, I've used 1/8 in  
lab setups.
