Larry, to answer your question, a set of ethernet segments connected
by MAC level bridges is indeed one logical network for the purposes
of internet addressing. We are running a large class B+ network
with 20 or so MAC bridges, spanning our entire campus.

Running the network this way certainly simplifies our local routing
problem. It has its own headaches, but there are other benefits,
such as being able to run Decnet, etc., over the same wire.
