Yes.

For IPv4 I can't see what advantage BULK has over $GENERATE or similar
back-end provisioning scripts.

For IPv6, if we have any reverse DNS at all for end-user devices it'll
probably be just a wildcard pointing to a placeholder record identifying
the VLAN.

BULK seems like far too much cleverness applied to far too small a problem.
