Cool.  I wonder how practical of a requirement it is for a relay node to not 
be NAT'd though.  Who is not behind a NAT?  Maybe the rules should be relaxed 
to allow those behind a STUN-compatible NAT to act as a relay node too.  That 
would really open the doors to who may be a relay node.  Note: I have not yet 
considered the added complexity in that case.  I am just thinking out loud.

I'm curious what Skype does these days.
