Thing is, neither of these cheap CPE has UPNP enabled, which leads me to
question whether claims regarding large numbers of serverless multi-user
game users are accurate.

I disable UPNP as standard practice since it is cannot be enabled securely,
at least not on cheap CPE.

I should have been clearer, apologies.  WRT LSN, there is no reason
individual users couldn't upgrade to a static IP for their insecurely
designed multi-user games, and no reason to suspect John Levine's ISP is
not representative with 0.16% of its users requesting upgrades.
