Thankfully, MAP is not CGN. Correctly stated, unlike DS-Lite, MAP doesn't require any CGN that causes the SP network to put up with the NAT state. This means that all the subsequent issues of CGN/DS-Lite no longer apply.

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.
