No. It has some advantages for administration, esp. if you have more than two
subnets hanging off a file server, like myhost-104 myhost myhost-160 myhost myhost-189 myhost

but it definitively runs (tested with sun3, sun4 from 3.5 to 4.1.3) otherwise.
E.g. if you use the loer number to indicate the subnet a two-footet Sun routes
to :

> myhost-104 myhost
> myhost-160 myhost
