Yes! TCP breaks due to the fact that "true" source/destination sockets
cannot be defined. The destination would not know where to send a response
except in the case where DNS is used...unless I need to do more reading

What's the problem with locally significant addresses? Having thousands of
10 networks will never present a problem unless those networks at some point
would like to talk to each other. Is that where this whole discussion is
going (or coming from) - that ultimately the more NAT'ing we do, the more
headaches we're creating for ourselves en route to true global connectivity?

because in a NATted network the same addresses are used in different
parts of the network. addresses are meaningless.
