Hola Lista,
  No estoy seguro como este el estado del NAT66 en otros vendor pero
todos sabiamos que vendría. Un pequeño extracto de la noticia:

"The patches allow the software to replace the address information in
IPv6 data packets with different information as an implementation of
Network Address Translation (NAT). McHardy says that the netfilter NAT
patch modifies the source code, which previously only worked with
IPv4, to suit IPV6, making targets such as SNAT/DNAT or MASQUERADE,
REDIRECT and NETMAP available to the IPv6 packet filter. The
developers have also converted the FTP and SIP NAT helper modules to
support IPv6."

mas adelante hace la siguiente mención:

...."netfilter working group agreed that there were "legitimate use
cases for IPv6 NAT". ....
