No objection, and active support for this approach.
(You are right, ICMP is at the IP layer, not at the transport layer.)
The draft uses "interior" and "exterior", while the traditional vocabulary for NATs is AFAIK "internal" and "external" (e.g. in RFC 4787).
A suggestion would be to align the vocabulary.
