Because that is the current business case of many ISP's ?
And they earn money with this? There are only few customers ISP's who
actually give out multiple IP's to end users.

1 IP address for 'home users', multiple for 'business accounts', for the
latter you pay a lot more. Thus if you want to have multiple PC's online
with IPv4 addresses you end up doing either NAT, going to a friendly ISP
or getting yourself a very expensive business type account.

Funny that ISP's claim they can't assign more IP addresses to endusers
because "there is a shortage", while they can simply request them from
their local RIR.

Note the above is for IPv4 and I sincerely hope that ISP's don't do this
for IPv6 and nicely give endusers a /48 routed towards the endpoint of
that enduser, including reverse dns delegation if that user asks for it
of course.

If ISP's don't do this, then we can stick to IPv4 and NAT just as well
and not even bother with IPv6.

(I am btw glad to know a friendly ISP ;)

That is exactly what I meant with the above. I should have added a
colon/newline behind the "to their RIR" part to separate the sentence
apparently. As for the ITU part, read between the lines of the following
presentations: http://www.itu.int/ITU-T/worksem/ngn/200505/program.html
IETF = open free end-2-end connectivity, ITU = regulate+charge for every
single application, and it seems they want to bring this weird idea to
the internet unfortunately...
