Pitfall 1:  Make sure you have enough support desk to handle calls from
everybody who's doing something that doesn't play nice with CGN/NAT444.
And remember that unless "screw you, find another provider" is an acceptable
response to a customer, those calls are going to be major resource sinks to
resolve to the customer's satisfaction...

Pitfall 2: These sort of short-term solutions often end up still in
use well after their sell-by date.  If you're planning to deploy a
new solution in 6 months, maybe throwing resources at a short-term fix
is counterproductive and the resources should go towards making the current
solution hold together and deploying the long-term solution...
