Although this should work, I would recommend that before someone use
either of these addresses (and in particular please
consider how many other networks with that address exist.  Without
getting into the whole renumbering argument again on nanog (#include
<flame.h>), if you are able to choose a portion of 10/8 space with some
amount of randomness you can reduce the potential for conflicts in those
cases where two private networks need to merge.
