No, it really isn't.
Their 40 parallel RFC-1918 addressing domains are all under their control and
can easily be coordinated by VZW.
You're option 4 expands that to 100 million parallel addressing domains not
managed by VZW + 40 that are + some additional number that are, but, by
definition likely overlap the existing 40.
