except when the tried to determine their external ip. and of course one

There are negligible benefits as far as I can tell from the vantage
points of end systems to creating new private scope ipv4 regions at this
late date.

network operators see some but frankly each one comes with additional
support costs as does using rfc1918... the difference is we've got a lot
of experience with the latter even in nat444 envirnments.
