So I should be able to hide my POCs if I plan to use the addresses only 
with private interconnections that don't reach "the public Internet"?

Disagree. We've had this argument repeatedly. Guaranteed uniqueness of 
addresses for private interconnection is a perfectly valid reason to 
consume addresses from the shared public pool.

That makes no sense at all. Why would you ever need to reach them 
*except* to spam them?
