Well, If you expect to have the number of machines a company like GE
expects, there is some advantage to getting a single block of numbers
and assigning the network numbers from one organization.

Having dozens of divisions of GE requesting their own class C and B networks
seems much more inefficient. Especially when many sites have little experience
with the internet.
