I don't think it makes much sense, without a fair amount of policy
around it. For instance, you'd need to know what to increment to
when you get to 10.1.1.254/32. Moreover, the mask range work you
mentioned as "icing on the cake" is not icing at all: it's part of
the cake, becase CIDR has been here for a long time. So you _have_
to be able to know what range you're in in order to do autoincrement.
You could write a function that would do all this for you, though.
