	I believe you nailed it, but the pony will still work on egress, and a sufficiently motivated user can instantiate sqm on an inward facing interface so that the real ingress (from the users perspective) will be processed after NAT. Also as you allude to IPv6 should work out of the box. I believe there were rumblings on net-dev to hook up iptables with the ingress qdisc, which in the long run might allow to get the de-NATed addresses from packets arriving on an IFB device (or it might not, who knows ;) ). In any case we should write up some documentation about the expected behavior and configuration options for the dual-isolation option, once it lands...

Best Regards
