>The biggest thing that encourages NAT from a corporate point of view

I won't get into "biggest" or "next biggest", but certainly a major
factor in encouraging NAT in the corporate world is a generation of
CIO's raised in the belief that NAT is a major component of an effective
security policy. If the IP stack on the PC of Joe in Accounting has a
1918 address, then that evil packet from Romania won't get there. The
absence of "end-to-end" in this view is not a design flaw, it is a
desirable feature. For these purposes v4 vs v6 is irrelevant; they don't
want a globally-routable address of either flavor on the vast majority
of their machines.
