They should use NAP, NAT is the IPv4 thing, NAP is for IPv6 ;)
Larger enterprises probably consist of 200 'sites' already, eg seperate
offices, locations etc. Thus they can, after becoming a LIR and getting
an ASN, which most of the time they already have, easily get a /32.

Actually, I would even go so far that the really large corps should be
able to get a /32 from every RIR when they globally have offices, this
could allow them to keep the traffic at least on the same continent, not
having to send it to another place of the world themselves.

That would really put the constraint on ASN's of course and thus: 65k*3
= maximum of ~180k prefixes when every ASN owner did this (and they
won't in most if not all cases).

Thus... say a newsserver full of illegal stuff is quite illegal?
Or that other nice example 'proxy servers', they store the data and then
relay it. A router could be said to 'store' the data also (in registers
for like a zillionth microsecond ;) and
