There's nothing odd about running through a private network. My company
does it all the time. For example, my T1 runs over a 192.168.0.x
network. That's because my office router and my gateway router need to
have a network for their serial devices. There's no point in wasting a
perfectly good /30 on a link when we're just routing a /28 on top of it.
So we used RFC1918 addresses instead. We also do the same thing for our
wireless devices which is the same thing only larger scale, and we
really don't want anybody mucking with the access points except us.

So I don't think your latency has anything to do with the RFC1918
addresses. I'm guessing absu-raintree sits on a IP-over-avian-carrier
link.
