You must also consider that some of these RFCs mentioned are very antiquated
and don't suit today's world. CIDR was created because of such limitations.
Using a supernet in the antiquated 'Class C' domain is quite acceptable and

Times change, requirements change, old standards need revised. Otherwise
things like routing tables could be one heck of a huge mess.
