On the first hand,  I do support draft-weil. I think I
understand the use cases enough to see that it *is* required,
especially for large MSO's, and potentially larger enterprises.

On the other hand, I can see the confusion regarding "using RFC-1918 space *for this purpose*"  vs  "use this space as *additional RFC-1918*.  The former just doesn't work due to
unmanaged overlap.   The latter *seems* like it should work,
but if you play it out until the first vendor starts releasing
equipment that uses it, you've now joined the first-case scenerio.

On the gripping hand, I hate the back-and-forth quibbling over the tiniest motes, hoping that the delays will just make the problem disappear...

So yes, lets please move this draft forward, with the text cleaning stating that it NOT be used as RFC-1918 space.
