This document defines basic terminology for describing different
types of Network Address Translation (NAT) behavior when handling
Unicast UDP and also defines a set of requirements that would allow
many applications, such as multimedia communications or online
gaming, to work consistently.  Developing NATs that meet this set of
requirements will greatly increase the likelihood that these
applications will function properly.  This document specifies an Internet 
Best Current Practices for the Internet Community, and requests 
discussion and suggestions for improvements.

This document is a product of the Behavior Engineering for Hindrance 
Avoidance Working Group of the IETF.
