Once upon a time, a now deservedly defunct organization called
marchFIRST, was brought in to do a security assessment of a university
network I was involved in and one issue I recall them "identifying" was
that the university was not "RFC 1918 compliant". The following
statement was also made:

  As part of the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST)
  Coalition, there is no firewall between the DePaul University data
  network and the Coalition network.
