Are we talking v4 or v6? For v6, we've always tried to project the
idea that renumbering, or rather adding and dropping prefixes, should
be business as usual (RFC 4192). But I'm not sure this idea has
taken among typical site IT managers. It requires rather disciplined
operational practices such as a complete and current network management
database from which configs can be generated for routers, DHCP, DNS
etc. Without such practices, I think we'll see very strong resistance
to renumbering, even for IPv6 where it should be easier.
