all of the disadvantages of IPv4+NAT with all of the transition costs of

i tend to agree, but in rfc-index.txt i could not find the change of
state to "Historic". what happend to very similar (and much more evil
IMHO) transition technology, SIIT?
indicates that the document making NAT-PT is in the RFC Editor's
i am not convinced at all with the content of the draft. if NAT-PT
is to be made historic due to the claims presented in the draft,
all of the NAT related documents have to be made historic, instead of
informational, since "informational" can be misleading to people who
try to implement stuff.
the worst of all is RFC3235. and all of the NAT traversal documents
(RFC3489, RFC3519, RFC3715, RFC3947, RFC4091, RFC4092, RFC4380) has to
be banned at once.
