Also, a DHCP server does not guarantee a binary option between public Internet connectivity or the use of a firewall/NAT. There's nothing in the world that says a DHCP server can't assign local addresses (fc00::/7) that don't route over the 'Net. You'd need a truly bad ISP for attackers to even be able to send you packets to those addresses, or receive packets from those addresses.
