As much as I hate to interject this...  CIDR is fairly new to me, but
referring to a "Class C" address conveys some pretty specific information ...
Similar to referring to 139.98/24.

To *me*, Class C implies a specific address range (probably no longer
needed) with specific masks, et al...

Oh well, back to lurk mode...
