too many of them are also wedded to the idea that all systems with access to the Internet are equal, and therefor NAT and firewalls are evil. becouse of these beliefs, I expect that we will run into many interesting interactions as people try to use IPv6 for real-world projects and find that things don't work as expected while I firmly believe that everyone should be able to choose to get onto the Internet at this level, I am equally strong in my belief that this level of access is not appropriate for all machines. a couple of examples: computers in a company that need access to the Internet for limited business functions should not need to be addressable directly from the outside. consumers should be able to choose an ISP that acts to protect them (both inbound and outbound filtering)
