It may a bit more complicated.

If you have a router that doesn't support unnumbered IP numbers you may
choose to use private addresses here. (I know I did at least once to get
around a 'Bay feature'.)

And most ADSL network are build as private networks on top of which you
will use normal adresses. (Again rather painfull to get things right but
this is rather common on ADSL networks.)
