Yeah, but CPE NAT with uPNP and other protocols is a far cry from LSN. 
Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that over 90% of my network is 
bridged (even have some cpe's bridging 802.11 in, which really through 
the vendors for a loop, but they did it). However, LSN doesn't have a 
lot of the capabilities that CPEs have for dealing with NAT breakage.
