A number of architectural solution proposals discussed in the IETF Softwire Working Group use Address plus Port (A+P) [RFC6346] as their technology base for providing IPv4 connectivity to end users using Customer Edge (CE) devices across a service provider's IPv6 network, while allowing for shared or dedicated IPv4 addressing of CEs.
