Are there commercially available 4rd solutions?  Especially sufficiently 
available to mitigate the competitive disadvantage this would put the 
TPIA provider in as compared to the incumbent providers ability to 
provide native IPv4?

I'm personally not aware of any 4rd solutions that are commercially 
available, and even if there are, I doubt they are to the degree that 
they wouldn't create a significant disadvantage for TPIA providers. 
Basically, customers couldn't use the CPE they have now, in all likelihood.

So what you suggest is nice in theory, but severely lacking as a 
practical solution as far as I'm aware.  I really wish it wasn't.
