That does not work, or slightly longer version, it will give you some very odd results which are very very unlikely to be what you want.

Class and host declarations are global in scope - so even if you defined them within a subnet (or pool, or shared-network) they will still be global and will still "exist" in other scopes. However, while your (eg) host statement is global, it will inherit options from the scope it is defined in - thus you can have a host in a subnet, which is given options (eg router) inherited from another subnet where it is defined. Hence why it is highly unlikely to give the results you expect or want.
