It is *not* simple - it is simple to implement, but very hard to  
implement correctly such that it solves the problem in the way it  
claims. If the problem, and its solution, really *were* this simple,  
and covered sufficient deployment cases, then it seems likely that  
STUN would not exist.

This is a highly limited specification, and it needs clear  
documentation that this is the case at the least.

(It is clean, I'll grant you, and - as a XEP - it is of course  
strictly optional...)
