You remind me of something I've been hunting for, which I think is relevant
to a lot of operationally related educational examples. Are there prefixes
that are likely to stay unassigned for the moderate to long term, other
than the RFC1918 group?
If I'm showing how to use a NAT with private address space on one side and
registered space on the other, I'd like to use some "safe" prefixes on the
public side that are NOT from RFC1918. Is there some block likely to stay
with IANA? Or possibly some space assigned to the military and likely to
stay in a secure network?
I really feel for the people who have 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, and the
other prefixes used in Cisco educational material for many years! How many
clueless people have picked those as their network numbers?
