I'm assuming no routers are involved that would get in the way, but
otherwise, supernetting, while not common, is perfectly standard.
I ran a config like this but with /22 instead so that I had 0.0 - 3.255.
I set up dhcpd to serve IP addresses in 1.x, 2.x and 3.x to various
hosts (based on mac address) and 0.0 to unknown hosts. This allowed us
to set up rules for web access through the proxy server.
Worked fine, it's been running that way for 2+ years.
