Use case for multiple subnets on a single neutron network

In all of the neutron examples I have seen, there is only one neutron subnet associated with a neutron network. Are there any practical use cases for associating multiple neutron subnets with a single neutron network?

I can't think of one. I just tried booting a VM with a port with two ips, but the security group rules will only allow one to be useful. ie packets from will be dropped here: -A quantum-openvswi-oc5b4f6cb-2 ! -s -j DROP -A quantum-openvswi-oc5b4f6cb-2 ! -s -j DROP

If a single OpenStack network (created using net-create) hosts two subnets (using subnet-create and the network id), how can we ensure a VM comes up with two ports with one on each subnet? Is the standard rule of thumb to use one network per subnet?

I think this will be useful for dual-stack IPv4 + IPv6 instances, where you want to control the v4 and v6 state of each interface on a network.
