Yep. Nat is terrible. Dual stack is even worse for end user exclusive.
Clients that migrate back and forth between different protocols at will
(hello Mac OS) are going to be really challenging for everyone, too.
But we didn't get magical, free, simple migration. So we could have done
some kind of 8+8 or LISP thing but we didn't. And here we are.
