Interestingly enough, there is a draft for NAT66, specifically NPTv6, 
but no draft for NAPTv6. So someone though it was okay to start allowing 
some NAT66, but everyone's still trying to fight NAPTv6, as businesses 
might use it. Oh noes.

The other concern was perhaps home routers, but let's be honest. There 
is a v6-cpe-router draft, and it easily could forbid the use of NAPTv6. 
It's already missing most of the stuff required to make home networks 
work in v6 the same way they do in v4 (prefix delegation added new 
problems that NAT didn't have, which they still haven't solved).
