[NTISP] Does anyone use NAT for dialup?

I am thinking my way through a situation.

I might be able to ask my upstream for more address space but if I use NAT for
dialups I could get around doing that.

Has anyone done that before and if so was there a problem you found in doing

(NAT = Network Address Translation, using RFC defined space like 10.10.10.X or, etc and using a box to translate that to your customers)

I have done it in a proxy situation on a network using Wingate before and the
network had no problem but the rule typically is, if you don't define what you
want passed through, it isn't passed through on that kind of software and I
don't want to have to be making up new rules for the box as I go. I want it to
be seamless for the customer of course.

I would appreciate comments.
