Well, the thread was initially about things connected to the Internet
(about NAT as a requirement because people can't have enough public
IPv4 addresses).  So I'm not particularily concerned about what enterprises
do *internally* - but it would scare me to hear about enterprises running
stuff on the external Internet that is old enough to be unable to do

(I know that enough firewalls and loadbalancers and such have major
shortcomings, but the *Servers* should be all good by now, some 15 years
after the first beta IPv6 stack for Solaris...)
