I think I'm getting convinced that your "modified NAT-PT" approach
is essentially the way to go.
My only concern is that there is not much time left until IPv4 address
depletion will start causing real problems, and we don't even have a
"finished" RFC for "modified NAT-PT" yet.
How do you see the timeline with regard to getting more feedback on
this I-D, publishing the RFC, implementation and deployment?
