He's claiming your solution to address your use case is confusing, not
that the use case is invalid.

If I understand correctly, the proposal for addressing the issue is to
make two rather simple changes:
1) if strict=False, mask off the bits described by the netmask when
creating an IPNetwork, such that the host bits are always 0.
2) add a single new function:
return (IPNetwork(s), IPAddress(s.split('/')))
