Or a 3rd option is to group addresses by family


   <addresses family='ipv4'>
      <ip address='122.0.0.3' prefix='24'/>
      <ip address='24.24.224.4' prefix='24'/>
   </addresses>
   <addresses family='ipv6'>
      <ip address='2001:23::2' prefix='48'/>
      <ip address='fe:33:55::33' prefix='64'/>
   </addresses>
   <adddresses family='ipx'>
      <ipx address='2423.4521.66.3.252.'/>
   </address>
