No. It has some advantages for administration, esp. if you have more than two
subnets hanging off a file server, like
126.96.36.199 myhost-104 myhost
188.8.131.52 myhost-160 myhost
184.108.40.206 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
>220.127.116.11 myhost-104 myhost
>18.104.22.168 myhost-160 myhost
