And_that_ is the crux of "NAT is broken in a number of ways"? James, I
guess it's matter of wording, but to me the above doesn't mean broken,
at worst it's a very slight disadvantage.
No, that's not all. As I mentioned, I have personally experienced NAT address clash, when using my VPN from a hotel, because they used the same address range as I did at home. When you do that, it becomes a "you can't get there from here" situation, because when you try to access a computer at the remoted end, your computer doesn't know it has to route through the VPN. There has also been mention of certain protocols that break.

Now, you tell me, what's so great about NAT, when you have sufficient addresses available to not require it? In that situation, it provides absolutely no benefit at all.
