Re: We didn't run out of ipv4
The IoT is still going to use "meet in the middle" servers, with or without NAT.
What I want is some sort of IoT standard such that I can run my own server, point all my own IoT things to it and then have a good restricted access to that from the outside so I can get my phone or laptop to call home. That way it all stays within my firewall, under my control and (bar vulnerabilities in the server), keeps all my data safe. Of course, it also keeps it safe from all the companies out there that want to collect my personal information, which is why they will probably never conform to a common protocol.
