As I said earlier: NAT layer = €€€ to some major supplier... one hands
washes the other and management doesn't need to understand anything,
just buy the package.

Not very large maybe, but definitively xs4all in The Netherlands are
doing it, and in Slovenia (where NIL is based) is rolled out at least
in the national ISP and the Universities (so I was told), and they
also let me know they have IPv6 mobility extensions deployed (which
are another nice thing to look for security, don't know if you have
already played with that?).
