Already in RFC3102, which restrict port number ranges, it is
stated that:

   This document examines the general framework of Realm Specific IP
   (RSIP).  RSIP is intended as a alternative to NAT in which the end-
   to-end integrity of packets is maintained.  We focus on
   implementation issues, deployment scenarios, and interaction with
   other layer-three protocols.

It's you who tries to change the meaning of "end to end transparency".
