When I switched to ADSL I'm pretty sure I was offered the choice of a 
single public IP address on the outside of my router, or a /29 public 
range for my home network (and presumably also a public address for the 
external interface of my router). I chose the former and don't regret 
having done so. I can do a mixture of static and dynamic NAT to allow 
things from the outside into particular internal hosts if I want do.

This was in 2005, and I can very well believe this choice was not 
available some time later.
