This RFC proposes an alternative addressing scheme for subnets which, in most cases, requires no modification to host software whatsoever. The drawbacks of this scheme are that the total number of subnets in any one network are limited, and that modification is required to all gateways.

For the definition of Status, see RFC 2026.

For the definition of Stream, see RFC 8729.
