We don't even do NAT here.  Our corporate parent has PI space that they've had since the Jurassic period of the internet and we mostly live on that (there are spots of 1918 addresses, but not for NAT purposes, think temporary networks in lab spaces).  Access to the internet at large is all via proxy, there is no direct way out.
