This is always the argument I hear from corporate customers concerning
wanting NAT. If mistake is made, the RFC 1918 space isn't routable.
They often desire the same out of v6 for that reason alone.
I personally could understand the fear of wondering if your stateful
firewall is properly working and doing it's job and how a simple mistake
could have disastrous effects that NAT systems usually don't have. ULA
w/ NAT very well may become the norm.
