Unfortunately, some people want a NAT implementation for IPv6. I guess
that they have always lived in a NAT environment they view as a
protection, and would feel so naked without it. NAT is not a part of the
IPv4 specification, it is just a hack and it could be implemented for
IPv6 too. Now that netfilter has IPv6 conntrack, I guess that it could
be done in Linux. However the netfilter developpers do not want to add
IPv6 NAT and I support this decision, although IPv6 NAT could be a
helpful quick and dirty hack in a some situations (e.g. source NAT to
work around some flaws in the source address selection).
