Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-7920:
-------------------------------------

I agree its an interesting idea, but i am worried about accepting strings for 
#3 because its impossible to prevent someone from passing in hostnames unless 
you write your own IP parsing and validation.

I am 100% sure that we should not be doing DNS here.

> {{InetAddress.getByAddress}} automatically transforms ipv6-mapped ipv4 
> addresses to ipv4 addresses. While this is usually desirable, it can make ip 
> prefix query a bit trappy. For instance the following code:
> {code}
> InetAddressPoint.newPrefixQuery("a", InetAddress.getByName("::ffff:0:0"), 96);
> {code}
> throws an IAE complaining that the prefix length is invalid: {{illegal 
> prefixLength '96'. Must be 0-32 for IPv4 ranges, 0-128 for IPv6 ranges}}.
