  •   Support These seems like a good idea; however I'm not sure the label fully captures what would be useful here. For example for Internet Protocol version 4 (Q11103) there are reserved ranges like 10.* that are never publicly routable, but they can be used by private networks. It would be good to captures this somehow with this sort of property... ArthurPSmith (talk) 13:44, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
    •   Comment I thought about these. Depending on the context, they may be valid. If there is interest in these, maybe they should be in a different one.

  •   Support CAREFUL - Reserved IP addresses should not be part of this conversation around "dummy" or "placeholder" values. They are not example values in the sense that there are rules on routers for controlling the routing which enforce "validness" or not. So "routable" could be another kind of property. Anyway, For this need of "placeholder" or "dummy" values...I think this is fine. Thadguidry (talk) 14:58, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
