hatred for NAT has gotten the better of your choice of arguments

Or perhaps our understanding of the implications of NAT cause us to oppose it.

NAT is a hack that's used to get around the shortage of IP addresses and in the process violates IP specs that addresses shouldn't be tampered with and it also breaks some things.

Now that more than sufficient addresses are available, there's absolutely no justification for continuing to use NAT.
