Disable the uPNP (some routers lack it, and yes, it breaks and microsoft 
will tell you to get uPNP capable NAT routers or get a new ISP).

uPNP at a larger scale? Would require some serious security and 
scalability analysis.

Your argument has nothing to do with this part of the thread and 
discussion of why implementing NAT at a larger scale is bad. I guess it 
might have something to do in other tangents of supporting NAT66.
