and what ipv4 free-pool run-out will do is cause ever increasing nat
deployment, with v4 fronting the nats (whether they are v4 nats or
nat-pt).  these will be in front of almost all multi-homed sites, an
ever increasing number.  this will happen, again, irrespective of
whether the space is exchanged on an open market or controlled by a
trade association of market incumbents.  it's just business.
