Since meeting Yakov years ago, I have always tried to teach network
designers to consider addressing and topology together.
It hasn't always worked. Many don't care about network population
estimates and demographics, some don't recognize those terms, and, a
few just want enough Class C networks to get their job done for the day.

One of the first things I ever learned from Yakov (at the
first IETF I ever attended):
"Addressing can follow topology or topology can follow
addressing. Choose one."
He has since pointed out that this may not be strictly
true when considering VPN technologies.
