  Overall, there is nothing wrong with an ISP using 'non routable' IPs
for internal machines. The problem is to filter them out on the gateway.
An ISP should not permit any traffic to leave its network with a source
IP that is not part of its public IP range. Also, it should not allow
any traffic in that is originating from non routable IPs.
