NAT (plus CIDR) was the short-term solution, and is realistic as a

It will be if ISPs continue to charge for extra IP addresses, as they
probably always will.
And if someday I want to switch to a new ISP who prefers not to give out
IPv4 addresses at all, that'll be fine with me, as long as my ISP provides
me IPv4 translation services to reach that portion of the Internet that is
still IPv4-only at that point.
If your ISP charges you extra for more than one IPv6 address, what
will you do?
