At our helpdesk we hear customers hanging their wireless router off their NATed PPPoA DSL modem all the time, such that its double-NATed.  That things work as well as they do is a testament to the resiliency of IP (and applications and servers) in the face of NAT.

By definition, every single one of them that buys wireless router, then
buys another and hangs it off the first. That happens more often then
you would think.
