Actually..  if they do not connect publicly;  all they need is
addressing that is unique among the networks that they do include
connectivity with.   It does not need to be globally unique, due to
the globally unreachable nature of privately interconnected networks;
since every host they can transmit a packet to is part of their
private interconnection.

PP127 seems to obsolete this  by providing shared space  that any
network could use for such purposes; in addition to RFC1918 space
available already available for shared use.

All the networks that do not connect publicly must do  is negotiate
between themselves in regards to which addressing will be used by
which network.
