ok, so you don't like the "use 127.0.0.0/8" proposal. fine.
RFC 1918 space is too small.  fine.
IPv6 is too hard. fine.

Shortly after discussions started on RF 1918, I proposed the following:

Since NAT exists, direct peering on a global scale will be fairly
restrictive, one should consider inverting RFC 1918.  Use those addresses
strictly and only for global interconnection/peering.

This would free up all other IPv4 space to sit behind your NAT and usable
in your enterprise networks.  Thats almost an entire IPv6 /32 of space for
everyone, without having to migrate to IPv6.

Problem solved.

Your welcome.
