RFC1918 conformance

Gated allows you to specify the ospf router id. AS others have mentioned

I know it well (really we have few gated-based routers there). Let me to
point my mind - it may be usefull to have short reserved address space in
the beginning (net and the end ( or simular)
address space. CISCO's router-id was used as amazing example _why it mey
be usefull_.

I don't think that Internet engineering decisions should be based
solely on the basis of Cisco's bad decsisions regarding their OSPF
implementation. You claim that there are other reasons why reserving and are a good idea. Can you share some of
these reasons? I'm not totally against reserving these networks, but I
do require more convincing.
