I think that when you get addreses, you end up with the upper 24 bits
defined, and you do anything you want with the 24 lower bits -- i.e. you get
a block of 16 million addresses. If my local enquiries come back, I'll
forward info to Andy. (Unless, again, I screw up a reply and I forward the
info to everyone.)
So far all I've gotten back is confirmation that the IEEE handles it, and
that Dartmouth College has a block, since we manufacture Ethernet cards for
the routers we build.
