Wow, somebody had a lot of time, and a lot of VMs, on their hands!

More than anything, that's potentially a waste of perfectly good IPv4 addresses. That said, I wholeheartedly approve.

BTW, it might not take more than one VM [or none] and some really fickle routing. I don't quite wear the networking hat that I used to, so I'm just going to smile at it for now, and maybe look into the nitty gritty somewhere down the road if I'm adequately bored.

whois suggests the IPv4 addresses belong to a small web hoster in Minneapolis, so the addresses might not be 'wasted' - maybe some bored network administrator just played with an existing server farm's routing tables to while away a long northern winter night.
