There is no need for NAT in order to multiple-home. BGP is every bit as effective and much simpler.

I know a lot of small businesses with one FiOS link and one Comcast
link and I don't think they're going to be able to do BGP. Their
providers won't do it and their prem equipment doesn't support it and
the local IT person doesn't have the know-how to do it.  I know that
the typical NANOG member isn't in this category, but this is a
use-case that is very common and outnumbers NANOG members.

I have one DSL and one Cable. Neither the DSL provider nor Comcast
will do BGP. I do BGP just fine without them doing BGP.
