Or perhaps our understanding of the implications of NAT cause us to

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.

You're ignoring the real world. Time, money, unnecessary change etc. I
have a "very broken", yet perfectly working NAT setup joining my local
RFC1918 office network to my external IPv4 /27 and IPv6 /48 - there is
no justification for changing that. You know, if it ain't broke ...
