If it is actually bad for nodes to implement PCP, it would be good if this were discussed.  I hadn’t heard this before, and in fact consider it a problem that routers implement the horribly complex uPnP protocol instead of PCP.

I realize this is an inopportune time given that you are finishing a document, but if you have time can you expand on this a tiny bit?
