    One new thing the webpage said was the following:

    * Relax IP address limitation by allowing prefixes in 240/4.

    Does this mean the networking community is going ahead now using up IPv4 Multicast regions for Unicast? How unfortunate! I'm a proponent of letting IPv4 die! (Though don't touch my 3 static IP4 IP's) :-)

      Never mind. I got confused around IPv4, 240/8 is not Multicast, this is unlike IPv6 which uses the last /8 (IPv6 /8) for multicast.
