The supersize option offered by e.g. McDonalds is not much larger than
the normal meal size in my experience.

So I guess, 8 bits = small, 16 bits = meal, 24 bits = supersize or
something, but that doesn't fit well with IPv6 since each segment
between colons is only 16 bits.

We could call the :: part the 'liposection' though.
