Maybe you're not really listening to yourself, but that is exactly what you're

get to internal machines, everything is directly available".

I suspect you're misreading something. Our point is that with NAT, when you want to access multiple computers with the same protocol, you have to resort to non-standard ports or ssh relaying. However, if you have sufficient addresses, with either IPv4 or IPv6, you simply connect to the desired computer, using the standard ports. Of your, your firewall should be configured to allow only what you want.
