Implications of having Active Directory Child Domain on same subnet?

Is there any problem with creating a child domain in W2K3 on a existing domain on the same subnet?

There should be no problem implementing a child domain on the same subnet as its parent.  If they're on the same subnet, though, why not just use OU's to organize and logically separate/restrict?

No problem... though you really shouldn't create child domains at all in 99% of the cases... instead you should be using Organizational Units - child domains needlessly complicate things.
