For me as an operator, MAP is most likely going to be implemented in a
CGN-like box. Yes, it's stateless. Doesn't matter, I still need to flow
traffic through a dedicated box because MAP won't be implemented in my
regular routers (if you know otherwise, please speak up).
MAP is all about stateless (NAT64 of Encapsulation) and IPv6 enabled
access. MAP makes much more sense in any SP network having its internet
customers do IPv4 address sharing and embrace IPv6.
It's still NAT.
