I'll probably choose another piece of address space If those numbered links will generate packets (eg. ICMP errors) sourced from 1918 space, then you should not be using 1918 addresses on them and it can break things like Path MTU Discovery. In general, using 1918 addresses for interface addresses when the interface routes public traffic is NOT a good idea unless there are special circumstances. Check the archives; this was discussed to death a few weeks ago.
