Point taken. Rather than reiterate my point I will refer to the following
excerpt from RFC 2993:
- NATs enable casual use of private addresses. These uncoordinated
addresses are subject to collisions when companies using these
addresses merge or want to directly interconnect using VPNs.
This is becoming a major drawback to NAT.

Folks should read and *refer* to the NAT WG documents before commenting. An
awful lot of work was put into the content and wording of these documents.
