So that's allowed (& will work?) by bind protocols? On my 
own bind facing www & serving my subdomain (delegated from 
public registrar) I resolve to & serve private IPs?
That's the easiest way out I was hoping for, in my tricky 
situation (being a part of large org it's often bureaucracy 
which defeats everybody)
I too employ vpn and for similar reasons I'd prefer my 
www-facing bind to resolve my private IPs for... who should 
give a toss but me only?
To me it's very basic logic - if a user cannot get to a site 
- URLs of which only informed regular users should know in 
the first place - that is my business, right? (and precisely 
what I want)

many thanks, L
