I don't see that that buys us anything that we wouldn't have with

        <ip type='ipv4' address='122.0.0.3' prefix='24'/>
        <ip type='ipv4' address='24.24.224.4' prefix='24'/>
        <ip type='ipv6' address='2001:23::2' prefix='48'/>
        <ip type='ipv6' address='fe:33:55::33' prefix='64'/>
        <ipx address='2423.4521.66.3.252.'/>
        
_maybe_ enclosed in a <addresses> container tag, but I don't think
that's needed.
