At least when Dave Taht was pushing his "make the class E space usable",
he had patches and testing for multiple systems.  Turns out that not many
systems check for 'first octet >= 240', but actually test for the class D space
and using class E Just Works an amazing percent of the time....

(Yes, I was surprised myself, but deploying it is still very much in the
"effort better spent deploying IPv6" territory...)
