Does it matter a lot for the coffeeshops - don't they just use an
RFC1918 network NAT'ed to a single IP from their provider?
We've already reached the point where many web sites are available only via IPv6. This is mainly in Asia, where they do not have enough IPv4 addresses to go around. That day is fast approaching for North America. Also, NAT is at best a bad hack to extend IPv4. In the process, it violates IETF IP specs (for example IP addresses are not supposed to be changed) and breaks some protocols.
