My example, although a bit convoluted to demonstrate a point, is about
robustness against Internet link failure. I don't think people's
internal connectivity should be dependent on their Internet link being
available and being assigned global address space. That's what the
global only people are saying.

(how is the customer going to access the CPE webserver to enter ISP
login details when they get the CPE out of the box, if hasn't got
address space because it hasn't connected to the ISP ...)
