isn't this one of the proper forms of reverse delegation in CIDR land?

like:
http://support.simpledns.com/kb/a146/how-to-sub-delegate-a-reverse-zone.aspx

describes, or in a (perhaps more wordy fashion) in RFC2317?
  http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2317

I think it may be the case that the NS hosts are not prepared for such a
domain/record mapping though... the nameservers that would need to to be
authoritative for a zone like:


128/25.168.207.107.in-addr.arpa.

and have a bunch of PTR records like:

128             IN PTR foo.you.com.
129             IN PTR bar.you.com.

etc...
