The only case that I am aware of where there is truly
*NO* intention to ever connect to the global Internet
is military networks. When I was referring to other
internets I did not have military networks in mind.

In every other case that I am aware of, the partcipants
in the internet also maintain connectivity to the Internet
via alternate paths.
