Whoa, that's unexpected. If we're making stuff up we should make it look
more made-up than that :)

Perhaps 'segment-f4s3t3' would be a better-looking made-up name for a
slice of network?

It's actually a meaningful name; the '5005' in that example correlates
directly with the VLAN ID, which should make it relatively easy to find its
context via the MAAS API if necessary (or the UI, if you feel like browsing
to a subnet and then manually changing the number at the end of the URL

Note that MAAS deliberately starts numbering its VLAN identifiers > 5000 so
that we avoid confusing the surrogate key with a VID like you would see on
the wire.
