ICE-Lite is easier for gateway-type devices, but it's still got to do the SHA-1 calc per STUN connectivity-check response packet, which is painful from a performance/scale perspective (and thus cost).

That's one of the things we've been arguing about in MMUSIC as being a problem for IPv4/v6 since ICE is the only "official" way to handle a dual-stack offer/answer... and the extra cost incurred for doing ICE is hard to justify since IPv6 transition is an expense with no added "feature".  But no one seems to care about that there, so we've been forced to go outside the IETF. :(
