Policy statement:

Private networks may obtain global addresses for private
network usage. Hosts within the administrative control of a single
organization should still use private address space in accordance with
RFC-1918 and RFC-2050. Private networks may receive global IP's for
private Interconnectivity if they have already used private IP space in
accordance with RFC-1918 and RFC-2050 and any further use of private IP
space would result in network conflicts.
