Those who use 1918 space are apparently not interested in communicating
with the Internet. I regard this as grossly off-topic for NANOG.

Granted; there might be some ratification for 1918 space in OOB or
control plane networks, but on customer-facing interfaces it is a
no-no, and should be discouraged with some vengeance.

If somebody were trying to sell me a NATed connection and calling
it "Internet connectivity" I'd talk to the proper government authority
about fradulent behaviour.
