No idea. I do not even see it - it actually double NAT (provider box

That's a killer. It's also an excellent example of why NAT is so bad
and why IPv6 is essential.

??? I'm fine with IPv4 so far and do not feel like I miss anything. So
I am not sure how you came to this conclusion.

Careful! Don't conflate what James is saying and what I'm saying.
NAT may be an 'evil' but its a necessary evil and delivers what is
needed for many users, yourself and myself included.
It does the job.
it will keep doing the job for the immediate future.
As, who was it? Disraeli?, said:
Change is not necessary until change is necessary.

When your ISP says "we're not supporting IPv4 any more" and you can't
find an alternative ISP who does, or when you need a IPv6 space for your
household IoT, then "change is necessary".

Until then, don't sweat it.
"Keep calm and carry on".
