Seems to me your objection is based on whether or not the customer
gets a public address vs a private address.

There's no need for NAT pools to be RFC1918.  Pretty sure everyone
is going to get a public address of some form... it just won't 
necessarily be globally unique to them.

As for jurisdictional issues:  This particular Australian ISP amended
its T&C document to give us the discretion of providing LSN addresses
about two years ago.  Will we need to?  Perhaps not.  But if we do, the
T&C's are already worked out.  Looking ahead in time and forecasting
future risks is one of the things businesses are supposed to do, right?
