Unfortunately some protocol purity zealots still have to
Linksys, Netgear, Belkin and consorts don't sell NAT boxes because
they think NAT is good, they sell NAT boxes because
consumers want to
maybe this is because "protocol purity zealots" take a long
term view and want to preserve the flexibility of the net
"market" to continue to grow and support new applications,
whereas the NAT vendors are just eating their seed corn.
Your long term view is irrelevant if you are unable to meet short term
If you can't provide the functionality that the customers want your protocol
purity comes down to 'you have to do it our way, oh and by the way we have
no interest in listening to you'.
