Don't be surprized to see (ether-)? peripheral lans hanging off general-purpose
boxen, each needing its own /64.
We also may end up with clusters-in-a-box replacing existing nodes;
they'll need /64s for their internal lans.
Virtual lans, conencting VMs w/in a node, could consume /64s, too.
65536 may be extreme, but I certainly see 257+ showing up.
