Policy Statement on Address Space Allocations

] Legacy equipment not being able to do that is something you can't do
] anything about, but it's time vendors learned what CIDR is...

  Noone in the world complained that Windows 95 couldn't read apple IIe

  Why should they complain when their antiquated equipment doesn't work in the
  big I?


Because the Big I is supposed to be standards based, unlike Apples,
oranges, and windows, and we evolve our standards, we should be making
provisions for legacy equipments.

Current equipment that do not work, however, have no excuses.
