Could you try to focus on the address policy implications (if any) of 
stuff like this?

As far as I can tell, most of your arguments would support 
standardization of some sort of IPv6 NAT, but that's out of scope for 
ARIN, and IMO would be better discussed on the appropriate IETF list.  
I'm sure there are some policy implications of all this, but I'm having 
a hard time seeing them amid all the debate.
