I looked into the idea of treating networks as containers of interface objects rather than addresses - it turns out it gets messy very quickly, because you definitely want your network address and broadcast address to be ordinary addresses, so making the host addresses interfaces instead of ordinary addresses would lead to inconsistent behaviour.
