> fc4: 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.252 bcast 192.168.1.3
> Now you still have *most* of 192.168.1.0/24 to assign to other
True, but the most likely scenerio for future expansion is that the
point-to-point link will be replaced with a switch and more machines, and
the machines would probably all want to be on the same network.
Even if multiple subnets are needed for multihoming, splitting up a class
C subnet adds confusion.
