DS-lite delivers a IPv4 softwire over a IPv6 upstream.  It also
introduces less problems than NAT64 as it works with DNSSEC and
with IPv4 literal.  Along with DS-lite there is a UPNP replacement
designed to work with distributed NATs (DS-Lite (AFTR+B4) and NAT444
(LSN + CPE NAT)) so that holes can be punched threw multiple devices
if needed.
