I completely agree with comments about .is_global and special_use.  Private IPs are just a subset of special use.  For some part Private means the Private use networks reserved by IANA and specified in IETF RFC1918.      

For this PR "IPv4 dummy address" is for sure not global.  Technically, it is not a private use IP either.  Just following what others have done.  I really like the apporoach of removing the routable special IPs.  Let me know if I should create a PR to do this.  This would include adding specific special use constant plus a whole bunch of very specific constants.  A constant like is_dummy will be added.

I pretty much have the code ready to go for IPV4.
