I don't find rehashing NAT fights to be very interesting.
I have an old laptop on my desk that sometimes runs the bitcoin
program (tracking the blockchain, not mining.) On IPv4 it's behind a
NAT but the router does port forwarding so it can accept incoming
connections. On IPv6 it has a routable global address.
Is it "on the Internet?" I cannot tell you how little I care about
the answer to that question.
