Move along, nothing to see here. Barring a few fanatics, everyone here
has known for several years now that CGN would be required for
continuing IPv4 support regardless of the progress of IPv6.

If you spin it right, it's a "Free network-based firewall to be
installed next month. Opt out here if you don't want it." And the
fewer than 1 in 10 folks who opt out really aren't a problem.
