Er.  That's not news.  That's been the state of the art for what, 15+ 
years or so now?   SIP (because it's peer to peer) and P2P are really the 
only things that actually give a damn about it.

No one is going to check out their neighbors website running on their 
neighbors computer if the neighbor didn't make an effort to make their 
computer a server (by assigning DNS, running server software, etc) 
regardless of NAT etc etc.
