There are two discussions of NAT/IPv6 going on. One is a tool for  
assisting IPv4/IPv6 conversion for networks (mostly ISP) that have not  
been smart enough to be ready for the present state, and as such is  
intended to be temporary. The other surrounds GSE and is looking at  
routing scalability, and btw could be used for certain kinds of making- 
things-a-little-less-obviously-insecure (which is to say that it's a  
security-related question but not the asymptotic approach to insanity  
that some folks seem to enjoy).
