For things w/o RTC clock (that are unlikely to travel from airport wlan
to next airport wlan) I usually do not want them to use any *external*
IPs at all (while for me hard coded or dhcp provided local IPs work fine).

I also do not want my ISP, Cloudflare, Google, or some hacker having access
at either of them to be able to tell when "some thing" in my local network
