Probably not, depending on the infrastructure and traffic you could 
have performance issues, and even if not that's a large and ugly 
broadcast domain, as well as not very secure.

You'd probably be better served by separating the server functions onto 
one subnet and breaking the client population up into two or three 
groups.  Obviously this is generic information as you didn't provide 
specifics.  As you noted, this is off-topic for the freebsd list; I 
suggest you look at Cisco's site for some whitepapers on network 
topology and implementation.
