Even if .. it is better to have a subset to start tests with then nothing
at all (imho).

And for the cisco bashing .. even with underpowered cpu's they do very well.

A long time ago I had a little computer with 64 kB ram. When the textprocessor
with many features was loaded, there were still 38kB left for text. Then
with evolvement of cpu and gui and so I had another box with 512 kB ram. 
After loading the textprocessor which had not more functionalty there
were about 10 kB left ... And today you need a Pentibum to just run the
gui smoothly..  
Consider CIDR a hack, but this keeps the world going without the need of
upgrading every router to a 300Mhz Alpha with 1GB Ram ...
