A strawman proposal is made to reduce public-facing TCP port use with large Network Address and Port Translators (NAPTs). This proposal attempts to preserve emergent NAT traversal techniques. It is anticipated that large NAPTs will be used for NAT64. This document describes a strawman proposal for discussion on the BEHAVE mailing list, <https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/behave>.
