Metonymy is more precise if using the name of the most basic/smallest 
part than a general/broadest one. However, in the case of virtual 
(private, global, national, regional, limited, etc.) networks, I 
would suggest that we either speak of VNs or of the most interesting 
case (VGN). Moreover than "private" may seem confusing in terms of 
legal status. That is, if you do not mean "VPN" as virtual public 
network :-) : did we not use to call them "externets"?
