That's the problem, normal people can't set up that lacking that fixed
address. Yes, of course, there is dyndns and such, but...

Carlos, you're loosing me - what does a normal person need a STUN server
for? Unless that normal person wants to provide VoIP services, he or
she has no need. A STUN server has one single reason for being - to
enable clients on a NAT'ed network to be reached from the outside.

Two meanings. One, that a normal client has to use a STUN server that
somebody else creates, and that a person that tries to setup asterisk
will probably also have to setup a STUN.

For "probably" read "possibly".
It depends on the business purpose of the Asterisk server.
it also depends on the meaning of "normal" with respect to the client.
