public IPs do not have to be natted as you thought.
i wouldn't route them further into your network than the firewall as a best practice but you could very well use public IPs inside your network if it was configured properly.
if you do use public IPs in your network, i don't think natting them inside the network will provide you any gains unless you are stepping on IP address boundaries or want some sort of hidden address for security reasons.
it's best to stay away from public IPs in your network if you can. keep them at the border of your network such as the internet router or firewall where they belong.
