If colo is working for you, great.  I'm not using colo, and, NAT
would definitely break things for me.  Can you point to a single
benefit from NAT (NAT, not ancillary benefits from stateful inspection)
besides synthetic address conservation?(*)

* I call the address conservation synthetic because it is really address
use optimization.  There still needs to be at least one external 48 bit
address/port for every flow in use at any given time.  Of course, with a
single /32, you usually get enough 48 bit tuples for most household
applications, but, not always.
