Hm, if you turn off the NAT66 function, wouldn't the traffic pass through unhindered, too?

Or do you propose to make IPv6 home gateways the same way IPv4 home gateways work, where it's usually not even possible to turn it off?

Consumer systems need to be able to function without a firewall device, anyway. Who brings a firewall to a wifi hotspot, or puts one between his laptop and 3G adapter?

I'm perfectly happy with an IPv6 network that only has rational people on it while those who insist on NAT stay behind on IPv4.
