But that can't happen, right? Nobody will ever see either the 464xlat IP
address or the DS-Lite IP address, because neither ever appears on the wire
- both terminals will see the public IPv4 address of the other side.

Even if they pass each other their IP addresses through some other
mechanism (e.g., SIP), that's no different from the case where two machines
talk to each other and both have the IPv4 address
