Although I've forgotten what the original thread encompassed, I think
you are misrepresenting my point.
You can really use any arbitrary network address internally, whether
RFc-1918 or not, and with the use of a NAT device at the perimeter,
there are no conflicting addresses. This does not, however, preclude
the need for a valid, and unique, network address which is announced
to the remainder of the Internet community.
