Those are not valid networks, since the network part must be all zeros. and would be valid networks, as would

In any case, if you're using l2tp (as subject says) then it's not an issue.
IPSEC runs in transport mode, protecting traffic from x.x.x.x to y.y.y.y,
where x.x.x.x and y.y.y.y are the IP addresses of the two L2TP daemons.
Any subnets routed over the l2tp/ppp session is then independent of IPSEC.
