A well run CGNAT maybe but I suspect that CGNAT will end up being a basket case quickly. CGNAT requires all kinds of extra bits for Legal Intercept (ie you have to keep a lot of mappings etc).
I certainly don't look forward to it, but hey, I helped get IPv6 turned into production at $employer-1.

Indeed. Unfortunately things like broken 6to4 tunnelling have meant happy eyeballs code to back that off a bit.
