> The first 32 bits form the minimum allocation size; you can't get assigned more addresses than this.

Well that's not true, if the below linked article is to be believed. The DoD has a /16, which is twice as big (bitwise, it's substantially larger in absolute terms) as the /32 the article says is 'the minimum allocation size'.

Another commenter also pointed this out (which I happened to read first), and it has been corrected. Thanks for commenting!
