Of course, for protecting them you should use that and firewalls and
other security measures that one deems neccesary.

But which address space do you put in the network behind the VPN?

RFC1918!? Oh, already using that on the DSL link to where you are
VPN'ing in from..... oopsy ;)

That is the case for globally unique addresses and the reason why banks
that use RFC1918 don't like it when they need to merge etc etc etc...

Fortunately, for IPv6 we have ULA's (fc00::/7), that solves that problem.

/me donates coffee around.
