In the brave new world of SaaS and the clouded solutions people should 
probably be badgering the ISPs that provide backhaul for their hotspots 
to be providing an IPv6 service.

IPv4 NAT in this context is generally a hack, and I think not enabling 
those who use it is probably a positive thing for the IT community as 
a whole :).
