My comment wasn't a reply to you, more of a general comment about the
surprising effort you still need to go to explain that stateful
firewalling doesn't mandate NAT.

I sometimes wonder if some people's heads would explode if I told them
that this PC is directly attached to the Internet, has both public IPv4
and IPv6 addresses, and is performing stateful firewalling - with no NAT
anywhere.
