Or they could use any addresses they want, and give themselves a way out of
the nightmare by using DHCP, bootp or some other sort of similar technology
to allow them to migrate thousands of physical or virtual hosts to a new
numbering topology.

If the lab your are connecting to already has burned up most RFC1918 space,
give yourself an out if you have to renumber the whole thing before you can
get it live on the Internet.
