RFC 1918 space is very commonly used (although it should be almost
universal by now) between the public internet and the final destination
[also public] space.  Simple resource conservation.

As for "How", remember that private space is no different from public
space, except for the "gentlemans agreement" we all have not to route it
externally.  For use as transit networks, private space _almost always_ a
Good Idea.

If Governments really want us to behave like civilized human beings, they
should give serious consideration towards setting a better example:
Ruling by force, rather than consensus; the unrestrained application of
unjust laws (which the victim-populations were never allowed input on in
the first place); the State policy of justice only for the rich and 
elected; the intentional abuse and occassionally destruction of entire
populations merely to distract an already apathetic and numb electorate...
This type of demogoguery must surely wipe out the fascist United States
as surely as it wiped out the fascist Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

The views expressed here are mine, and NOT those of my employers,
associates, or others.  Besides, if it *were* the opinion of all of
those people, I doubt there would be a problem to bitch about in the
first place...
