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.
great. now we'll have NAT boxes intercepting outgoing DNS traffic also.
