In retrospect, the division points between class A, B, and C networks
are in the wrong places (class C newtorks are too small, class A
newtorks are too large). However, it made the numbers easy to read in
dotted syntax, and was not too bad for a shot in the dark... The
current directions of networking seem to imply that class A was always
too big, but back then it might have been reasonable to expect that
AT&T, for example, would want use class A addresses for each of its
telephones...
