Zotero needs an internal LVS service IP to be assigned to be consistent with all the other service approaches
fwiw, i asked bblack and he checked and said we can use the entire /24 range of IPs here even though it's not a real /24 network as such but all indidivual /32 but we can use up to .254.
Yes, of course we can. It is not a technical limitation but an effort to avoid fragmentation of IPs for as long as we can. More like a "keep it clean" policy with the added benefit of allowing an easy split of that network in smaller ones if needed (which we may very well not need, but you never know)
