I agree with that. Fixed IPs are more secure and don't require assumptions. My point was how they should be interpreted if they are allowed.

The other issue is validation that the prefix is something sensible. ipv6/16 is a LOT of addresses and ipv4/128 is wrong :). I guess you are doing that already.

:) its mathematically correct but may be confusing for some people.
