Since meeting Yakov years ago, I have always tried to teach network

It hasn't always worked.  Many don't care about network population

few just want enough Class C networks to get their job done for the day.

        Yep, very true.

        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.
