As pointed out by Keith privately, traceroutes are not the only culprit. Telnet to a host from a private IP, it does a reverse lookup on your IP, etc. Basically everything that triggers a reverse lookup adds to the pain, but if reverse lookup is configured correctly on the local DNS server it removes the pain for all apps as well.
Now, why don't people do this?
