Any SIP URI's entered through CRUE live in the PUBLIC 4.4.e164.arpa tree. They should be resolvable on the public internet. If they're not, there's no point in those SIP URIs existing or being visible in the public DNS. If a provider wants to put unresolvable names on the internet, then that's their funeral. I wouldn't recommend that because it's bad for the operational health of the internet. It would be as dumb as publishing hostnames with unreachable RFC1918 addresses on the public internet.
