It certainly does me. But then, I've had statically assigned globally

NAT != dynamic IPs
NAT != single IPs
NAT != even single dynamic IPs
Nothing says you have to run NAT if you have a single dynamic IP.
(Nothing says you can't NAT with multiple static IPs, either, not that

I agree NAT is generally evil. It is (very) occasionally good.
Slightly more commonly, it is a tolerable evil.
Removing a major excuse for NAT is one of the things I like most about
