 And where is the ROI for Telia? How would you go about to try
 and make money out of flat-rate ADSL connections? Don't forget
 that practically all ISPs in sweden are dumping their connections
 (selling the product with loss).

 I think (ok, know) that NAT is optional in the current system and the
 reason that many ISPs use NATs are that they are easy to roll
 out (no IP configuration on the customer facing interfaces),
 and that RIPE don't like public IP-addresses unless they're
 explicitliy needed. Not saying that I like this.
