That was done in order to silence this smilint warning:

NAT-MIB.mib:1126: warning: index of row `natAddrPortBindEntry' can 
exceed OID size limit by 143 subidentifier(s)

I don't think we need to fix such things in objects we're deprecating, 
so the next revision will just revert back to the definition from RFC4008.

Thanks,
Simon
