How would you propose to assign addresses to multiple devices?  I 
suppose that you could add an additional character to the callsign for 
the various additional hosts, however, it does impose some artificial 
limit on the number of hosts that can be addressed by any one 
callsign.  How would you handle more imaginitive hostnames than, for 
example, G4JEC-X.

I suppose a host could have more than one name (or perhaps just use 
the callsign+unit identifier just to create an ip address) but it 
gets a little messy, does it not?
