I don't know if prefilling input with "default network masks" is a
good idea. This will cause repeated errors with people using small
networks and class A or B private address ranges.

In the other hand, using a combo input, pre-listing common network
masks, like "" (/30) and "" (/23), seems
not dificult doing, as there are only 30 possibilities, and masks
shorter than /16 (except /8) are so rarely used that can be safely
