I only wish that I had the first clue about what you are going on about
here Owen.

If a tree falls in the forest, and if it is not routed on the public
Internet, then why should I or anybody else give a damn about what
you do in the privacy of your own intranet? Your private intranet
and what you do on it is of no concern whatsoever to the actual
Internet community. Nor does the administration of publicly routable
IP addresses by the various RIRs have any bearing on what you elect
to do on your own private intranet.
