I don't see how you can reach that conclusion so easily. I drive my 
vehicles on the public roadway network, and while they all display 
number plates, you'll find that translating that information to my home 
address is non-trivial, at least in this state.

Why should my home network packets be any different (and yes, I use more 
than a /29 here)?
