When household appliances begin becoming IP addressable, I think we will see
a move towards assigning an Internet IP address per household (much like
today's street address). The household will perform NAT for all devices
within (one street address can house many people, not just one).
IMNSHO, NAT is evil. While most end-luser applications work "fine" with
it, it does impose restrictions on what can be done as compared to
possibilities in the end-to-end universe.
*Designing* something to be NAT in a world that goes toward a larger
address space is broken and should be avoided att all practical costs.
I do sense that this has been discussed before and will now stop.
