I ran into this too, and I had to disable private-address on user-facing
instances of unbound because there are apparently enough slightly broken
domains that list additional records of RFC1918 nameservers to be annoying.

Can removing this line of code be the default behavior?  I suspect you
would take issue with asking that this turn into a config toggle, which I'd
also be fine with.
